Providing an opportunity for change
Welcome. The Eighth Judicial District
Department of Correctional Services is an independent public agency,
with a board of directors, created and established under Chapter 905 of
the Code of Iowa to provide community correctional services to the
fourteen counties in southeast Iowa that comprise the Eighth Judicial
District: Appanoose, Davis, Des Moines, Henry, Jefferson, Keokuk, Lee
(North and South), Louisa, Mahaska, Monroe, Poweshiek, Van Buren,
Wapello and Washington. We provide comprehensive adult community corrections programming in the
Eighth Judicial District. Simply put, the District provides all
correctional services except prison incarceration. The district does
maintain two residential correctional facilities in Burlington and
Ottumwa, respectively. All District services and programs are included
in a group of intermediate criminal sanctions ranging from no active
supervision up to actual prison incarceration. Basic community
corrections services are offered in addition to a wide array of special
programs and treatment services. This site is designed to better serve crime victims, community members
and offenders. To access general topics, simply follow the links in the
left column which also link to specific topics about each county served. The daily announcement marquee at the top of the page is to inform
visitors about changes and updates to this site, or any information
regarding the cancellation of offender treatment groups and classes.
Please verify all cancellations by calling the phone number provided by
the facilitators. To read more about our vision statement and the mission of the Iowa
Department of Corrections, follow the links in the left column.
