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.
