Event Abstract

Since August 2013, almost 6,000 PREA audits have been completed and the data collected by the PREA Resource Center, in support of the US DOJ, has become an essential feature of understanding the audit landscape. Audit data can tell us a great deal about the positive changes corrections, detention, and law enforcement professionals have made in the facilities under their operational control, and the ways these successes help to protect inmates, residents, and detainees from sexual abuse and sexual harassment and create safer working environments for staff. The first segment of this session will show what we have learned from audit data over the first two cycles, including implementation trends, growth in audit uptake, distribution across facility types and geography, and trends in compliance and corrective action.
