How do I make an Open Records (also known as FOIA) Request to the Iowa Department of Corrections?
Please note: FOIA requests submitted to the DOC should pertain to prisons, parole, probation, and work release.
Open Records Requests* (as defined in Iowa Code Chapter 22, AKA FOIA requests) can be be submitted by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org ; or for more information on contacting the department, click here.
*As allowed by Chapter 22, fees may be assessed to the requester if the time to honor the request exceeds 30 minutes of staff-time.
The department requests that submissions be sent to the above email address in order to ensure a receipt of sending the request for the sender, and the proper receipt, handling, billing, and response to the request by the department.
