Depke Juvenile Justice Complex Passes Voluntary Prison Rape Elimination Act Audit

Following an extensive study and training program, the Depke Juvenile Complex requested and passed an audit conducted late last year under the federal Prison Rape Elimination Act.

The act was adopted nationally in 2003 to provide analysis of the incidence and effects of prison rape in federal, state and local institutions, and to provide information, resources and funding to protect individuals from prison rape.
