Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)

The Prison Rape Elimination Act, PREA

The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) of 2003  was signed into federal law with the purpose to provide for the analysis of incidence and effects of prison rape in Federal, State and local institutions and to provide information, resources, recommendations and funding to protect individuals from prison rape. In 2012, the Bureau of Prisons published standardized guidelines promulgated by the Attorney General of the United States. PREA applies to all public and private institutions that house adult or juvenile offenders.
