Unable to Locate an Inmate in Iowa

If you are unable to locate an inmate in Iowa then help is available. If you are unable to locate an inmate in Iowa, but know which facility the person is in, InmatesPlus can help you get information for specific facilities. This can include the address for the facility and the related case information that is available for a specific inmate if you have either a full name or an inmate ID number. This can be important for being able to contact a loved one or stay in contact if the person has been moved. The information that is available for the general public is also available on each individual site. However, some people face a different problem, that of not being able to locate an inmate in Iowa that they need to keep track of because they are a victim or the person could be a problem upon release.

If you need to locate a prisoner in Iowa, but you are not sure where they are located, then try VINELink. VINELink is a free third-party site that offers up to the date information for inmates that is updated each day and is confidential though requires registration. Information about a release date, charges, and any other available information is free to access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is great for keeping track of family members or those who may have caused you to be a victim. The best part is, if you are keeping track of a particular person, you can sign up for notifications via phone, text, or email to be updated with any changes. This offers peace of mind and time to prepare in any way needed.

Iowa has a large number of jails and prisons throughout the state. If you have a friend or family member incarcerated or awaiting trial in one of these facilities, it can be overwhelming to find out what to do, how to keep contact, or even put money on the books for a specific inmate. This is even harder as you learn that each facility has a unique way of doing things with different rules and regulations. This is also where InmatesPlus can be truly helpful. If you are aware of what facility the person you are searching for in is, then the specific DOC information can be found through the provided links. This covers all the available jails and prisons in Iowa. DOC information is not limited to a facility webpage and address, but can allow you to see forms, visitor information, and how to add money to an account or keep in contact with an inmate. This can vary greatly from facility to facility which may be confusing if an inmate is moved.

 It is important to keep contact with those who are incarcerated because it makes the transition when they get out a bit easier. Even receiving mail during the week can be a welcomed break from the monotony and serve as a reminder that life is better on the outside. In addition, for those who may want to keep track of an inmate that is related to a particular victim, DOC information and pages can help you make sure an inmate is still incarcerated.
