The goal of Implementing the Prison Rape Elimination Act: Toolkit for Juvenile Agencies and Facilities is to provide juvenile agencies and facilities of all sizes, political divisions, and geographic locations with a step-by-step guide for preventing, detecting, and eliminating sexual abuse of residents in their custody – and for responding effectively to abuse when it does occur.
This toolkit will help assess your juvenile facility’s operations with an eye to improvements.
The Toolkit is divided into folders holding documents and videos related to:
- Introductory information about PREA [Prison Rape Elimination Act] and it Standards;
- Self-Assessment Checklist with supporting forms “to provide a step-by-step process for juvenile facilities to review and assess policies, procedures, and practices in light of the PREA Standards and accepted best practices”;
- Additional resources to assist you in PREA-readiness.
