What Are Jasper County Arrest Records?

Arrest records in Jasper County are official documents that provide information about the apprehensions and detainment of individuals who are allegedly involved in criminal activity in the county. Apprehensions may be followed by questioning and release, or by formal charges or hearings. These records are not considered as proof of the subject’s conviction of a crime unless it is part of a criminal record, which summarizes the suspect's disposition and sentences. Otherwise, arrest records focus mainly on the arrest and typically include the following:

  • Personal data (name, fingerprint, gender, race, etc.)
  • Arrest date and location
  • Name of arresting officer and warrant details (if any)
  • Location of jail or detention center
  • Indictment and case status

These records are generated by the Sheriff’s Office and police departments in several municipalities of the county.

Crime Statistics

There are no current crime statistics for Jasper County available at the county or state level. However, the crime data explorer on the FBI website provides an up-to-date index of data collected from four different law enforcement agencies in the county. According to the statistics, Jasper County recorded 636 crimes in 2018. Property crimes constituted 80% of these incidents with 511 reported cases, while there were 125 violent crimes reported by law enforcement agencies in the county. The crime-by-crime analysis indicated that there was one homicide, two arsons, four robberies, and 16 rapes. The more frequent offenses consisted of 42 motor vehicle thefts (MVT), 90 aggravated assaults, 158 burglaries, and 311 larceny-thefts. The statistics also revealed that the Newton Police Department recorded the most criminal cases, with 466 indexed offenses.

What Are Jasper County Criminal Records?

Otherwise known as rap sheets, criminal records in Jasper County are official documents that provide a comprehensive rundown of an individual’s criminal activities in the county or state, depending on the record custodian. The extensive details contained in these records are collected from different administrative offices and departments within the territory, where the information originated. For instance, arrest information is obtainable from the Sheriff’s Office, judicial proceedings from the District Court, and booking details from the county jail.

Ideally, these details and more are public and obtainable from both local and state repositories. However, the amount of information available in background check results depends on the requester’s authority. Besides, records may be sealed by a court. Individuals can get these records from the originating departments in the county or from the central repository managed by the Iowa Department of Public Safety.

How Do I Get Jasper County Criminal Records?

Interested persons can obtain criminal background reports from the statewide database that is operated by the Iowa Department of Public Safety. This involves conducting background checks through the Criminal Investigation Division by sending both request and billing forms via mail or fax to;

Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation
Support Operations Bureau 1st Floor
215 East 7th Street
Des Moines IA 50319
Fax: (515) 725-6080
Phone: (515) 725-6066

Multiple requests will require the same number of request forms but one billing form. Mandatory information in the request form includes the subject’s first name, last name, date of birth, and gender. Middle names and social security numbers are recommended for streamlined searches. Unless the record subject signs the release authorization section of the form, results may not provide a complete criminal history record.

Individuals must also provide a U.S. address or fax number on the billing form. The division charges $15 per request, which can be made in cash, money order, pre-paid account, interagency, or checks (made payable to the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation). Only record subjects can make in-person requests, and the requester will have to provide government-issued identification.

Note: The unit suspended online requests due to the development of a new records check website.

How to Find Jasper County Sex Offender Information?

Individuals can locate sex offenders geographically by using the sex offender registry map provided on the Sheriff’s Office website. Information is also obtainable by using the Iowa Sex Offender Registry, which is managed by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation. Individuals can get listings of convicted or registered offenders in the state as well as the location, personal data, and compliance status of offenders. Victims of crimes can also sign-up for VINE services to search for and obtain notifications on any change in their offender’s status.

How Do I Visit an Inmate in Jasper County Jail?

Inmates in the Jasper County Jail are allowed to receive on-site and remote visits that have been scheduled through the jail’s visitation system, as well as approved by the jail staff. New or prospective visitors are expected to sign-up on the system and follow the instructions to apply for visitation privileges. The standard for approval is non-restrictive and only disapproves persons with active no-contact orders or non-relatives who have been in the Jasper County Jail within the last three months.

For remote visits, only the inmate can initiate the remote call. However, approved persons must have a positive account balance, log-in, and indicate that they are available for visits. On the other hand, on-site visits must be scheduled at least 24 hours beforehand directly with the jail, or by selecting the “on-site visit” option on the visitation system. General rules concerning in-person visits to the center include:

  • Visits are monitored and recorded.
  • Inmates have the right to refuse visits.
  • Misconduct, vulgar actions, and violators of jail rules will lead to visit termination, suspension, ban, or criminal charges, depending on the offense.
  • Visitors must be suitably and moderately dressed.
  • Inmates facing disciplinary actions can have visits suspended.

Phone: (641) 792-3255

Note: Uncertified copies do not contain social security numbers, financial details, medical details, and other sensitive information.
