Sex Offender Registry

The Federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act requires that colleges and universities advise their campus communities where law enforcement agency information provided by a state concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. The Act also requires sex offenders already required to register in a state to provide notice, as required under state law, of each institution of higher education in that state at which the person is employed, carries on a vocation, volunteers services or is a student.

A registry of sex offenders who have been determined to be of high or moderate likelihood to re-offend is maintained by the State of Iowa at: For more specific information or to find out which offenders have indicated they attend or are employed by Drake, please contact Sgt. Barry Arnold of the Des Moines Police Department at (515) 283-4833 during regular business hours.

WARNING: The information on the Iowa Sex Offender website and the information available to the Des Moines Police Department may be inaccurate, out of date and/or incomplete. Reporting to the registry is voluntary on the part of sex offenders. In addition, budget constraints have prevented the sex offender registry from being kept up to date.
