ICA Mission:  To enlighten, educate, serve and support.

IOWAICA addresses the full range of our state's correctional issues. Since its inception in 1957,
ICA has done so with a competent, skilled, and enthusiastic membership. The Association prides itself as being one of the strongest state correctional organizations in the nation.

ICA spans a broad base of correctional programs: adult and juvenile, institutional and community, male and female.  Whatever your professional realm, there is a place and need in ICA for YOU.
