Inmate Education

Standard 115.33/115.233 requires agencies to provide information on the agency’s zero tolerance policy regarding sexual abuse and sexual harassment and how to report incidents to inmates/residents upon intake. Within 30 days of intake, agencies must provide comprehensive education to inmates/residents either in person or through video on their right to be free from sexual abuse and sexual harassment, their right to be free from retaliation for reporting any incidents, and the agency’s response policies and procedures. For juvenile facilities, Standard 115.333 requires agencies to provide age-appropriate education within 10 days of intake. For lockups, Standard 115.132 requires agencies to notify detainees of the agency’s zero tolerance policy regarding sexual abuse and sexual harassment.
