I have been informed of the Prison Rape Elimination Act for youth in a Department of Juvenile Justice
Facility. This information included how to report incidents of sexual abuse or sexual assault while in this
program or detention. I understand that I will not be retaliated against and I will be protected if I report this
type of abuse. I also understand that filing a false report may lead to disciplinary actions against me.
I have been informed and believe that I understand the following specific items regarding the Prison Rape
Elimination Act (PREA) listed below:
That Federal Law requires that this facility take steps to prevent sexual contact of any type
from occurring during my stay and that there is a zero-tolerance policy in place for this type
of behavior.
That it is a violation of State and Federal Law for any employee or adult providing services at
this facility to touch me or communicate with me verbally in a sexually or romantic manner.
That youth-on-youth sexual contact will not take place in this facility, and that facility
discipline, including criminal action, will take place against any youth engaging in this
behavior.
I have received verbal and written information about PREA during my intake, which also
included the following:
Residents have the right to be free from sexual abuse and sexual harassment;
Residents have the right to be free from retaliation for reporting sexual abuse and
sexual harassment;
The agency shall provide multiple internal ways for residents to privately report sexual
abuse and sexual harassment, retaliation by other residents or staff for reporting sexual
abuse and sexual harassment, and staff neglect or violation of responsibilities that may
have contributed to such incidents;
The agency may discipline a resident for filing a grievance related to alleged sexual
abuse only where the agency demonstrates that the resident filed the grievance in bad
faith; and
The facility shall provide residents with access to outside victim advocates for
emotional support services related to sexual abuse.
The agency shall offer all residents who experience sexual abuse access to forensic medical
examinations whether on-site or at an outside facility, without financial cost to the resident.
