“The PREA Resource Center (PRC) designed this PREA [Prison Rape Elimination Act] Essentials Page to guide professionals in their implementation of specific standards; therefore, this page is organized by standards categories ... Each category contains: (1) a brief synopsis summarizing the standards in that category, (2) links to an online version of those standards, (3) links to helpful resources related to those standards sorted by correctional facility type, and (4) where relevant, a discussion of some key issues raised by those particular standards. The issues and resources included here are not exhaustive, but rather offer a snapshot of those that may be of particular interest to practitioners working to comply with the standards.” The standards categories are: Prevention Planning; Responsive Planning; Training and Education; Screening for Risk of Sexual Victimization and Abusiveness; Reporting; Official Response Following an Inmate/Detainee/Resident Report; Investigations; Discipline; Medical and Mental Care; Data Collection and Review; Audits and State Compliance; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans-gender, Intersex (LGBTI) and Gender-Nonconforming Inmates; and Culture Change.
