Under a State Law passed in 2002, sex offenders in Iowa may not live within 2,000 feet of a school, day care center, or home day care. The city -- with assistance from Dallas County -- has created a map that shows the areas that are restricted under this law. View the map online (PDF).
The city has taken all reasonable steps to ensure that the information provided in this map is accurate and up-to-date. However, as day care centers and home day care businesses open, close, or relocate, the information may become out of date without the city's knowledge. Every effort will be made to periodically confirm the information contained in the map.
