Prison Rape Elimination ACT (PREA)
PREA Unanimously passed both houses of Congress in 2003. It was the first federal law to address sexual abuse in detention (prisons, jails, juvenile facilities, lockups, community confinement) requiring data collection efforts, a grant program, a bipartisan commission, and national standards.
- No one deserves to be sexually abused
- Sexual abuse in detention is unacceptable and not part of the punishment
- Tolerating sexual abuse in detention is harmful to individual inmates & to the SA movement
- Sexual abuse is a crime no matter where it is committed.
- Sexual abuse jeopardizes safety & security of everyone
The APT Foundation maintains a ZERO tolerance policy around rape, sexual abuse, and/or sexual harassment. You may report any event without fear of retaliation and your report will be held in strict confidence. To report an event, please feel free to speak with any staff person at your facility that you feel comfortable in making the disclosure.
You may also report to:
- Any member of our medical staff: Nursing, Primary Care, or Psychiatry.
- Any member of our clinical evaluating staff
- The PREA Administrator at (203) 781-4600 during regular business hours (8:30 – 4:30 M-F)
- The APT Foundation after-hours Supervisor at (203) 584-9447
Any allegation of sexual abuse or sexual harassment may result in referral for criminal investigation by the CT State Police or other legal authority.
