 Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office Releases 2017 Annual Report

2017 Annual Report

2017 Annual Report Press Release

Effective January 1, 2018:  Any books or magazines mailed to inmates that we accept, become the property of the jail and will be stamped as such.  These items can then be given to the designated inmate to use while they are here.  Once they leave, the books/magazines remain with the jail and will be placed in the library for other inmates to use.  This will eliminate the need to store excess property.  The 3 book/magazine rule addressed in the jail rule book applies at all times.

Beginning November 13, 2017 all visitations for A pod will be on Fridays only until further notice.  The hours for visitation are as follows:
A1 Inmates:  8:30-10:30 am
A2 Inmates: 3:00-5:00 pm

A3 Inmates:  12:30-2:30 pm

Due to system updates within the Black Hawk County Jail, beginning October 16th, 2017, night visits for adult inmates will be suspended until the updates are completed.

Completion time is expected to be sometime late December 2017.

This does not apply to juveniles.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers, and participants that helped make this year's DON'T Golf Tournament a success.
