Residential services provide supervision of offenders who demonstrate an inability or unwillingness to function under less restrictive program supervision.

There are two residential correctional facilities in the Seventh Judicial District. The residential facilities provide highly structured live-in supervision of problematic, high risk and/or high needs offenders. The offenders are referrals from court, the Iowa Board of Parole or the Federal of Bureau of Prisons.

The Residential Corrections Facility (RCF) is located at 1330 W 3rd Street, Davenport, Iowa and the Work
Release Center-605 Center (WRC) is located at 605 Main Street, Davenport, Iowa. The RCF houses sixty-four (64) male offenders. The WRC houses one hundred and twenty (120) male/female offenders. The average stay at the facilities is between three (3) and six (6) months. Offenders are required to obtain employment and address treatment needs as directed by the court or identified by assessments. Offenders are required to meet financial obligations such as child support, victim restitution, court costs, etc. while in the facilities.

The primary purpose for the Residential Corrections Facility is to provide structure and supportive services to persons who lack the self-discipline and skills to conduct themselves in a responsible, pro-social manner. Residents gain skills and learn responsibility both through involvement with internal counseling sessions and community social service, educational, and employment programs. A level system permits residents to demonstrate their growth in responsible behavior and newly acquired skills. Residents must demonstrate financial responsibility by maintaining gainful employment and by complying with all payment expectations, including the payment of RCF rent, restitution, court costs, attorney fees, fines, child support and similar responsibilities.

Starting on May 1, 2016 rent for probation/work release clients is $18.00 per day. For OWI continuum clients rent is $27.00 that also pays costs for 21 day treatment program they attend during the first part of their stay. Length of program is 26 weeks. If all goals are met could be reduced to 4 months.

The RCF is a minimum-security facility. Consequently, security is a major focus of the program in an attempt to protect public safety while holding residents accountable for their behavior. Residents are monitored when they are at the RCF and when they are involved in activities away from the RCF. Eye counts, monitoring while on furloughs or pass, employment, and substance abuse testing are a few elements of the RCF security process. The RCF now houses up to 68 male only clients that are on probation status, some state work release clients and male OWI clients.

Presentence investigators, probation/parole officers, District and Associate Court Judges, DOC institutional case managers and the Community Placement Office at IMCC refer clients. All referrals are made to the Residential Manager or his designee who determines the appropriateness of the placement. The most frequent factors considered in making placements are:
1. History of any violence
2. Ability to secure and maintain employment
3. Connections to the local community
4. Willingness and capability to participate in treatment programs
5. Previous experience, if any, in residential programs
6. LSI-R risk score or Jesness strategy group

RCF Admissions
Probation residents are admitted to the Residential Corrections Facility upon order of the District Court or placed in the Residential as a modification of probation by the Probation Officer per the correctional continuum. Parolees are admitted either as a special condition of their parole status as determined by the referring probation/parole officer or as a condition imposed by the Board of Parole or Administrative Law Judge. OWI clients are generally placed through the coordination of the District Court and the Residential Manager; however, the Community Placement Manager at the Medical Classification Center (IMCC) may seek placement of some OWI clients. The Community Placement Manager at IMCC places Work Release residents through coordination with the Residential Manager or DOC institutional case managers enter the offender information in ICON transfer instances after the BOP approves work release.

RCF Level System
The level system is designed to explain program expectations to the resident, reward positive behavior, monitor resident progress and enhance program consistency. Level advancements are granted to the resident who demonstrates and maintains responsible behavior. Advancements are granted only when the resident has exhibited and maintained progress toward program expectations.
To ensure a fair method of awarding residents of the Residential Corrections Facility upward ability and increased rewards for responsible behavior and a fair method of reducing resident benefits for irresponsible behavior, the District Director shall establish a Level system consisting of a minimum of four levels and a transition phase based on a contingency systems that grants rewards to the resident for meeting RCF program expectations. Residents shall earn furloughs and time reduction for completion of the following objectives: employment or education program stability and performance; level of participation in sex abuse treatment groups, substance abuse treatment activities and other treatment programs and achievement of other correctional plan goals; money management; successful use of furloughs; RCF Counselors review the level system with residents during the intake process and review the process periodically throughout the resident's involvement in the program. Curfew begins 10:00 pm nightly-ends at 6:00 am. Residents are accountable to the RCF staff 24-hours per day, seven days a week. Staff conducts periodic checks on all residents. They cannot move from destination to destination while on furlough during curfew hours. Persons who allow residents to stay at their place of residence must be aware of the monitoring of residents whereabouts. That is, RCF staff calls destinations at random times throughout the course of furloughs to verify the location of the resident. Consequently, the residence must have a functional internal line phone service-NO CELL PHONES. Furthermore, use of home computing systems must not interfere with the RCF staffs ability to conduct telephone checks.

Purpose, Mission, Vision, Philosophy

Section 905.2 of the Code of Iowa authorizes the Seventh Judicial District Department of Correctional Services to furnish or contract for services to assist individuals who have been ordered by the courts, or the Parole Board or the authority of the Interstate Compact Services to participate in correctional programs designed to modify their behavior. The goals of the Department are:

  • To support public safety
  • To provide alternatives to the incarceration of offenders
  • To protect and ensure the rights of persons who are charged with or convicted of a public offense
  • To provide programs and services that assist individuals to become productive and law-abiding citizens
  • To provide cost-effective programs and services
  • To avoid costly duplication of services by utilizing community resource agencies
  • To provide accurate and useful information to the courts to assist in prudent decision-making

Protect the Public, the Employees, and the Offenders
The “Public” is listed first since they are actually our employers and represent the reason for our employment. The “Offenders” are listed last since they represent the final product of our work and “Protect” not only includes from harm but also includes protect a good future for the offender. In between are listed “Employees” since they are the vehicle and method for accomplishing the other two components of the mission and are the most important component.

Every offender makes it and our communities are safe. We invest in partnerships so that all members of the community have hope of succeeding. Individual growth is encouraged and expected, and achievement is recognized. Shared decision-making and team participation demonstrate our mutual respect. We measure our results and do what we know “works”. Innovation is valued; Diversity is our strength; Offenders are held accountable.

An underlying philosophy of our Department that is tied to our goals, mission, and visions is that for each offender we seek the least punitive sentence and sanctions to be used consistent with the need to promote public safety while modifying the offender’s behavior. The Criminal Justice System has as its responsibility the need to provide for public safety and to assist other social systems with maintenance of an orderly society where individuals may strive to achieve their own objectives so long as they do not infringe upon the rights of others. Community-based corrections has a special role to prevent further involvement with law enforcement and the courts.
