Guidance in Cross-Gender and Transgender Pat Searches

Developer:The Moss Group, Inc.

PRC, along with its partner, The Moss Group, Inc., has released an instructional video and facilitator’s guide on conducting professional and respectful cross-gender pat searches and pat searches of transgender inmates. The Moss Group, Inc., and PRC produced this resource in an effort to support agency compliance with the PREA standards. However, the standards do not require the usage of any specific vendor or curricula, including those produced by the PRC. Agencies evaluating training products should complete an independent evaluation of whether or not the training product will meet training requirements as specified by the PREA standards. See below for links to these resources.
