In compliance with Section 115.322 of the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) Standards, we have developed policies to ensure referrals of sexual abuse and sexual harassment allegations are investigated.:
Data Review for Corrective Action and Publication
In compliance with Section 115.388 of the PREA Standards, DCYF will review data collected and aggregated pursuant to section 115.387 in order to assess and improve the effectiveness of its sexual abuse prevention, detection, and response policies, practices, and training, including:
- Identifying problem areas;
- Taking corrective action on an ongoing basis; and
- Preparing an annual report of its findings and corrective actions.
Also, in compliance with Section 115.389 of the PREA Standards, DCYF shall make all aggregated sexual abuse data readily available to the public at least annually.
Pursuant to Section 115.401 of the PREA Standards, JJ & JR facilities’ final audit reports are posted here. Audits are based on a three-year cycle; the following audits represent those facilities that have been audited to date.

If you suspect sexual abuse or sexual harassment of a youth in a Juvenile Rehabilitation facility, there are several ways of reporting:
- Contact the facility compliance manager or the statewide PREA Administrator (see the list)
- Contact Child Protective Services (CPS) (1-866-363-4276)
Please have any information or evidence readily available (e.g. alleged victim name, alleged perpetrator name, date/time of incident, location etc.). Your report will be documented and forwarded to CPS and law enforcement (depending on the type of allegation) for investigation, per JR policy.
Upon receipt of a report we will ensure the alleged victim is protected and, depending on the type of allegation, provided medical and/or mental health services including forensic exams and victim advocate support. All reports are taken seriously and all reports are investigated.
