From the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) Toolkit, this guide discusses the prevention of sexual violence against LGBTI detainees. It addresses both policy change and practices that correctional facilities can incorporate.
This PCAR information packet is designed for sexual violence advocates to learn more about working with prisons.
In 2003, the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) was passed, and the PREA standards for corrections were introduced in May 2012. This packet will help advocates prepare to work with prisons as they implement PREA standards.
Presents data from the 2012 National Survey of Youth in Custody (NSYC), conducted in 326 juvenile confinement facilities between February and September 2012, with a sample of 8,707 adjudicated youth. The report ranks facilities according to the prevalence of sexual victimization, as required under the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (P.L. 108-79). The prevalence of victimization, as reported by youth during a personal interview, is based on sexual activity in the 12 months prior to the interview or since admission to the facility, if less than 12 months.
This toolkit provides detailed information and guidance for juvenile justice agencies and facilities to implement Prison Rape Elimination Act standards. It guides organizations through effective implementation of prevention programs, early detection, and meaningful response to residents in these facilities.
Presents data from the 2008-09 National Survey of Youth in Custody (NSYC), conducted in 195 juvenile confinement facilities between June 2008 and April 2009, with a sample of over 9,000 adjudicated youth. The report provides national-level and facility-level estimates of sexual victimization by type of activity, including youth-on-youth sexual contact, staff sexual misconduct, and level of coercion.
