Iowa Juvenile Detention Center

The state of Iowa has two different types of juvenile detention facilities in the state. First, they have one state school run by the Iowa Department of Human Services. Then there are twelve county juvenile detention centers. These facilities are run by local county youth services agencies. Each type of facility serves a different demographic of youth offenders and offers different programs and services.

Both the Iowa Department of Human Services and local county youth services divisions are the government agencies in charge of Iowa juvenile inmate records. There is no way to run an Iowa juvenile detention center inmate search online. Therefore, anyone requesting information on a youth offender would need to contact either the state Department of Human Services or the local county juvenile detention center directly. Family and friends will have an easier time getting information than a stranger.
