The Pennsylvania Department of Corrections has a zero tolerance for institutional sexual abuse. We strive to maintain a safe and secure environment for all who are in our custody. We have developed policy and procedures in accordance with the federal Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) standards. In addition, we have developed educational materials for both staff and offenders.
This webpage has been established to provide information regarding institutional sexual abuse and how the Department of Corrections is working to keep a safe and secure environment. Our oversight, in regard to PREA, pertains to all state correctional institutions, the DOC's Bureau of Community Corrections facilities and all contracted facilities, as well as any county jail that enters into a contract with the Department of Corrections to house offenders.
