In what ways is it illegal for correctional officers to call inmates cowards, to provoke them and even when a visit is called not to tell the inmate that there visit is waiting for them.

Hello,

I will be helping you with your question today. Please let me know if you have further questions.

 

In terms of visitation in Iowa prisons, that is governed by internal regulations, and it is not "illegal" to deny visitations. The document I will provide you has resources for making sure that visitors are allowed. http://www.doc.state.ia.us/documents/OffenderVisiting.pdf

 

Also, there is a grievance procedure that is followed to complain of treatment in an Iowa prison: http://www.law.umich.edu/facultyhome/margoschlanger/Documents/Resources/Prison_and_Jail_Grievance_Policies/Iowa_Policy.pdf

 

This is done through an Offender Grievance complaint, which you can obtain at the prison. Here is a sample. http://www.law.umich.edu/facultyhome/margoschlanger/Documents/Resources/Prison_and_Jail_Grievance_Policies/Iowa_Sample_Grievance_Form.pdf

So even if I myself am approved and he is allowed to have his visits yet can still deny a visit for no reason

Hi Brittany,

 

The reasons for termination of visitation are on page 9-10 of the first document that I provided you.

Thank you!
