PREA Standards in Focus

PREA Standards in Focus is designed to provide a quick synopsis of a PREA standard, the intent and purpose, implementation tips, challenges, and a few audit issues related to the standard to assist in further awareness and education. FAQs and resources are directly linked to provide ease of access and bundle in one place. 

We encourage you to share this new feature with your colleagues and prepare a binder to download and catalog the Standards in Focus documents for your office as they become available. As a best practice, we recommend supervisors and key leadership include this as an agenda item at staff and management meetings to encourage discussion and promote good correctional practice. We hope this serves as a helpful guide to ongoing education and sustainability. If further questions arise, please follow up via the PREA Resource Center at Contact Us.
