Offender Services
Pretrial Release Services
Pretrial Release Services provide supervision of qualified defendants who are released from jail pending trial.
Presentence Investigation (PSI)
The Presentence Investigation (PSI) report includes a social history of the offender as well as the offender’s criminal history. The investigation is completed on the order of the Court, following the offender's plea of guilty or being found guilty. It is used by the Judge in sentencing proceedings and also by the Probation and Parole Officer, Department of Corrections’ institutions, and the Board of Parole to assist in developing correctional treatment plans and in decision-making.

Probation
Probation is the process by which the Court either suspends a sentence to prison or jail, or defers judgment, and places an offender under the supervision of a Probation or Parole Officer. The Officer utilizes community resources as well as research-based programs and practices to supervise the offender and assist him or her in making necessary, positive changes.
Parole
Parole is the process by which the State Board of Parole conditionally releases an offender from a state institution or residential facility and places him or her under the supervision of a Probation or Parole Officer. Parole supervision is similar to probation supervision in that the offender must follow certain conditions of supervision and participate in programming to reduce the likelihood that she or he will re-offend.
Intensive Supervision Programs
Intensive Supervision Programs are used with probationers or parolees whose needs and risk to re-offend are determined to be higher, through the use of research-based assessment tools. Intensive Supervision Officers provide a higher level of supervision to a smaller case load of higher risk offenders. They utilize correctional programming designed to hold offenders accountable while challenging and helping them change their criminal thinking processes.

Residential Correctional Programming
Residential Correctional Programming is offered at four locations: Ames, Fort Dodge, Marshalltown and Mason City. These four Residential Corrections Centers provide housing and around the clock supervision for offenders demonstrating an inability or unwillingness to function under less restrictive supervision. Offenders can be placed in a Residential Center as a condition of probation or parole, as a transition from a Department of Corrections institution (work release) or as an alternative to serve a sentence on a second or subsequent Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) offense. Offenders participate in programming in the community, as do probationers and parolees who are living independently.
Special Services Treatment Unit
The Special Services Treatment Unit provides intensive correctional treatment resources, utilizing evidence based practices and best practices. Types of services offered include: cognitive behavioral treatment programming, specialized programming for women, and Iowa domestic violence program. Treatment staff also provides specialized intake assessments and evaluations, as well as re-entry services to offenders.
Electronic Monitoring
Electronic Monitoring is a tool used to assist in the surveillance of higher risk offenders. Various options exist, from a computer calling an offender’s home at certain times to ensure he or she is abiding by a curfew (voice verification), tracking to make sure an offender is at his or her home (radio frequency) and global positioning satellite units to track real time movement wherever the offender goes. Daily costs vary depending on the level of technology used.

Moving On
Moving On is a 24 session program designed to provide women in the corrections system with alternatives and choices free from criminal activity. Participants learn to identify and mobilize personal and community resources. The group is facilitated by Corrections employees. The Moving On program also satisfies treatment requirements for women who have been Court Ordered to a Batterer’s Education Program.
Thinking for Change (T4C)
Thinking for Change (T4C) is an integrated, cognitive behavior change program for offenders that include cognitive restructuring, social skills development, and development of problem solving skills.
Sex Offender Programs
Sex Offender Programs are also available throughout the District. We provide intensive supervision of sex offenders, as well as programs specifically designed to help reduce sexual abuse victimization using psychological evaluations, testing, and treatment of sex offenders.
ACTV
Iowa Domestic Violence Program (ACTV-Achieving Change Through Value-Based Behavior) The Special Services Treatment Unit provides intensive correctional treatment resources, utilizing evidence based practices and best practices. Types of services offered include: cognitive behavioral treatment programming, specialized programming of women, a comprehensive aftercare program, and Batterer’s Education Programming. Treatment staff also provides specialized intake assessments and evaluations, as well as re-entry services to offenders.
