Jail Credit/Time Served


Jail Credit is calculated ONLY at the time you are sent to prison.  The prison will provide you with a jail credit request form which needs to be submitted to the Records Department.  This request should include the following information:

  1. Name/Date of birth of Inmate
  2. Case Number (court docket #) of EACH case you are requesting credit for
  3. What the original charge was
  4. Date of original offense

This information is needed to insure you receive the correct amount of credit for your cases.  After your request is researched and calculated, this information will be provided TO THE PRISON via e-mail.  Separate copies will not be mailed to the inmate.

If you are to serve your time in the Black Hawk County Jail, the jail staff will research your case to see if any time was previously served.  They will apply this to your sentence when you come to jail.

If you require verification of incarceration in the Black Hawk County Jail, we can provide this verification for $10.00.
