Recently, Iowa had a parolee who had been retaken from Nebraska. The parolee completed a treatment program in Iowa and needed to return to Nebraska to reunite with her newborn child. She was on a waiting list for an apartment in Nebraska. Sally agreed to grant expedited reporting instructions allowing the offender to go to a temporary home plan, while waiting for a permanent residence. This is something not all states would agree to do but Sally was willing to assist. Sally is always willing to work with us to reach the best outcome for offenders and the community. Iowa appreciates her positive outlook in dealing with difficult situations. In her day to day interactions with Iowa, Sally is a great example of the "spirit of the compact".
