Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)

What is PREA?

The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) of 2003 is a federal law established to address the elimination and prevention of sexual assault, sexual misconduct and harassment for those who are incarcerated.  Sexual misconduct under this law includes:

  • Inmate-on-Inmate sexual assault and abuse
  • Staff-on-inmate sexual misconduct (sexual/inappropriate relationships with inmates)
  • Inmate-on-inmate and staff-on-inmate sexual harassment

PREA Response at the Enumclaw City Jail

The Enumclaw City Jail is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for staff and inmates.  Prevention of sexual assault, abuse or misconduct, and harassment in the Enumclaw City Jail is paramount.  The Enumclaw City Jail has zero tolerance policy toward sexual assault, sexual abuse or misconduct, and/or sexual harassment of inmates by either other inmates or staff.   It also recognizes offenders who are sexually abused or harassed as victims of a serious crime.  

The facility immediately responds to allegations, thoroughly investigates all reported incidents, pursues disciplinary action, and refers those who perpetrate such conduct for investigation and prosecution, when warranted.  Allegations involving inmate-on-inmate will be investigated (administrative, criminal, or administrative and criminal) by Department PREA Investigators.  Allegations involving staff-on-inmate or contractors/visitors-on-inmate will be investigated by an outside agency.  In addition, retaliatory actions against employees or inmates who report incidents of sexual assault, abuse, or harassment will not be tolerated and will result in disciplinary action and/or criminal prosecution.  Perpetrators will be held accountable and every victim will be offered services.  The Enumclaw City Jail’s policies regarding sexual misconduct apply to all inmates.  They also apply to employees, contractors, and volunteers.
