General Information

From the Iowa Department of Corrections website:

Offender Telephone System 

The Iowa Department of Corrections provides telephone service for the benefit of inmates and their families. The costs of providing this service are reflected in the rates charged for its use, which are lower than for most other states. Rates will differ due to maintenance service and reporting of calls.

Iowa law (Ch. 904.508A) authorizes the Department to maintain an inmate telephone fund, the proceeds of which are to be used for the benefit of inmates. The Iowa Board of Corrections has directed that these funds be used for the following offender benefits:

  • Legal services
  • Religious accomodations
  • Education
  • Victim services
