Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (PREA) - Audit Reports

Public Law 108-79
28 CFR Part 115

National Standards to Prevent, Detect, and Respond to Prison Rape in Confinement Facilities

In September of 2014 the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services initiated its first series of compliance audits. Independent auditors, trained by the Department of Justice, began the audit process with a six week period of soliciting comments from all concerned individuals at each facility and a comprehensive review of policy and procedure. Since these first audits in 2014 the Department has continued the audit process to ensure that all of its facilities become and remain PREA compliant. Each facility is visually inspected and confidential interviews are conducted with inmates and staff. The trained auditors are provided full access to each facility and allowed to inspect all records and documentation. Upon the conclusion of the audit the auditors submit reports of full PREA compliance for each of the facilities. In compliance with PREA standards the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services will continue the audit process to certify compliance at all facilities within the required three year period. Copies of PREA audits are available below.
