Prison Rape Elimination Act

The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) of September 4, 2003 (Public Law 108-79) was enacted by Congress to address the problem of sexual abuse in all US penal facilities.

Adherence to PREA standards supports the elimination, reduction and prevention of sexual abuse/sexual assault within our prisons, community corrections centers and local jails.

Dismas Charities, Inc. mandates ZERO-TOLERANCE for all forms of sexual abuse/misconduct and sexual harassment in its centers in keeping with the intent of PREA to ensure a safe, humane and appropriately secure environment, free from the threat of sexual abuse/misconduct/harassment for all clients.

Dismas Charities, Inc. ensures that allegations of sexual abuse or sexual harassment are referred for investigation to the appropriate agency with the legal authority to conduct criminal investigations, unless the allegation does not involve potentially criminal behavior in which case, the allegation is referred for administrative investigation. All allegations are referred for investigation.

Residents of Dismas Charities, Inc. are encouraged to immediately report allegations of sexually abusive behavior to a staff member they trust, the Director, or via the Resident Kiosk process. All allegations, including third-party reports, are confidential and will be thoroughly investigated.
