Iowa Prison Industries (IPI) provides work training to the men and women incarcerated at Iowa's state prisons. More than 90% of incarcerated individuals in state prison are scheduled to be released, and our job is to teach them how to get and keep a job once they get out.
IPI programs help keep our communities safer because incarcerated men and women with good job skills are less likely to commit new crimes once they are released. Ex-offenders with good job skills are also an important resource for Iowa employers, contributing to the state's economic development. IPI is 100% self-funding and receives no government appropriations.
IPI's products and services may be purchased only by governmental agencies, school districts, non-profit groups and employees of these organizations.
