Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)
The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) of 2003 is a federal law established to address the elimination and prevention of sexual assault and rape in correctional systems. PREA applies to all federal, state, and local prisons, jails, police lock-ups, private facilities, and community settings such as residential facilities.
PREA seeks to insure that jails and other correctional settings protect inmates from sexual assault, sexual harassment, “consensual sex” with employees, and inmate-inmate sexual assault. These violations affect security and staff safety, and pose long-term risks to inmates and staff inside jails, and to the public when victimized inmates are released into the community.
PREA requires jails to keep data regarding inmate-inmate sexual assaults, non-consensual sexual acts, and staff sexual misconduct.
