State Association for the
Preservation of Iowa Cemeteries

Inmate labor in Iowa communities might be able to clear and repair your pioneer cemeteries. Direct inquiries to Lettie Prell, Assistant to the Director, Department of Corrections, 420 Watson Powell Jr. Way, Des Moines, IA 50309. Phone: 515-242-5718. To begin an inmate work project, identify the project and then contact the Department of Corrections' office. The Department will then determine whether the project falls within the scope of what inmates can do; will contact the appropriate union, business and trade representatives to seek their advice on taking on the project; will make the initial contact with the institutions regarding the availability of inmates to do the work; and will have the institution contact your designated county representative to discuss number of workers, time frames, materials needed and other logistics. In most cases ,tools and materials would be a local responsibility.
