The Pennsylvania Department of Corrections has zero tolerance for
institutional sexual abuse and sexual harassment. 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 and work diligently to prevent,
detect and respond to incidents of sexual abuse and sexual harassment.
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 facilities
contracted to house individuals committed to the Department’s care.
