This video is one of a 12-part series documenting the positive impact of the PREA Standards. Produced by the PRC in partnership with Just Detention International, the PREA and Culture Change series features currently and formerly incarcerated people and corrections staff speaking about how PREA is changing the culture of corrections—and making facilities safer for everyone.
Tony Booker is a longtime corrections professional in Johnson County, KS who led his county's PREA implementation efforts. He discusses the importance of the standards in cultivating a safe environment, the creation of a sexual assault response team, and building connections between facilities and community resources.
The videos are a very useful tool for staff trainings, and other PREA stakeholders—such as advocates, victim services providers, and health care professionals—can also draw on them for their work inside detention facilities.
Each video is also available in an accessible format including closed captions, interactive transcript, and audio descriptions.
