  PREA - Prison Rape Elimination Act
  The National Council on Crime and Delinquency (NCCD) was awarded a cooperative agreement with the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) to implement the National PREA Resource Center (PRC). The PRC’s aim is to provide assistance to those responsible for state and local adult prisons and jails, juvenile facilities, community corrections, lockups, tribal organizations, and inmates and their families in their efforts to eliminate sexual abuse in confinement.

  PREA Audit Reports  
  In 2013, facilities across the country began implementing the components of the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) which was passed in 2004 with unanimous support from both parties in Congress. The JJC has implemented a comprehensive PREA policy and has undertaken substantial training regarding PREA.

All states’ facilities must be in compliance with PREA in order to maintain current federal funding levels. Failure to comply with PREA standards may result in a five to 10 percent reduction in overall federal grant funding from the Department of Justice to the JJC and the Department of Corrections.

Every state is mandated to complete an external audit using a federally certified auditing firm to examine one-third of its facilities each year. The JJC contracted with a certified auditor with specialization in juvenile facilities and community programs to conduct the required 2014 audit. Over the summer, that company inspected five JJC facilities and reviewed the JJC’s overall implementation of PREA.

The reports below demonstrate that the five JJC facilities audited are in full compliance with the Federal Prison Rape Elimination Act. This year that includes one secure care and four Residential Community Homes: Juvenile Medium Security Facility (JMSF), D.O.V.E.S., Albert Elias, Costello Prep, and Pinelands. The audit reports can be found below.
