The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA), which was signed into law by President George W. Bush on September 4, 2003, was created to eliminate sexual abuse in confinement. "PREA" is simply training, screening, first response, investigation, and victim-centered care. To the extent possible, agencies should strive to integrate PREA into existing training, screening, emergency response, investigation, and health care procedures. Corrections practitioners who have been working successfully to implement sexual abuse prevention and response policies often say that what PREA requires is what any professionally run correctional agency should already be doing to ensure the safety and security of its personnel and operations.

During this twelve hour PREA "Workshop" the following PREA Presentations will be reviewed:

  • PREA Overview (Getting started)
  • Developing a PREA Compliance Policy
  • Trans-Males, Trans-Females and the Use of Protective Custody
  • Developing an "Internal Audit/Self-Assessment Process
  • Maintaining Compliance
  • The Audit Process (Pre, On-Site and Post Audit)
  • Developing a "Risk Assessment Tool"
  • Staff and Inmate Training
  • Specialized Training (Investigators, Medical and Mental Health)
  • Retaliation (Staff and Inmates)
  • Incident Reviews

Who should attend: PREA Coordinator, PREA Compliance Managers, Investigators and those who have the responsibility of developing compliance strategies with the PREA Act of 2003. 

Class: Class size is limited to 21 participants, registration is first come, first served basis.
