Prison Rape Elimination Act

Congress passed the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (PREA), which applies to every person incarcerated in a U.S. correctional institution – federal prisons, state prisons, jails, private facilities, lock-ups, juvenile facilities, and immigration detention centers. The law applies to multiple forms of sexual violence, including coercion by staff or other incarcerated people.

The Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department (MDCR) has successfully passed its PREA AuditPDF (9.4MB).

MDCR has established a “Zero Tolerance” for inmate sexual assault/abuse and shall make every effort to provide all inmates with a safe, humane and secure environment, free from the threat of sexual assault/abuse and staff sexual misconduct/harassment.  All incidents of MDCR staff sexual misconduct/harassment shall be reported to the MDCR Security and Internal Affairs Bureau at 786-263-6500.
