     What is PREA?


The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) of 2003 is a federal law established to address the problem of sexual abuse of persons in the custody of U.S. correctional agencies. PREA applies to all correctional facilities, public and private, including prisons, jails, juvenile facilities, military and Indian country facilities, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facilities.


PREA incidents involve these types of conduct:

  • resident-on-resident sexual abuse
  • resident-on-resident abusive sexual contact
  • staff sexual misconduct
  • staff sexual harassment of a resident


Rock Valley Community Programs, Inc. has a zero tolerance policy against sexual abuse and sexual harassment of our halfway houses residents.
