Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) reports
At King County, we have zero tolerance for sexual abuse and sexual harassment involving people in custody. We work continuously to improve our practices.
The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) is a US law established in 2003. Its intent is to further prevent and respond to sexual abuse and sexual harassment of people in custody at correctional agencies.
PREA has provisions for the development of standards to prevent, detect, and respond to sexual abuse and sexual harassment. PREA applies to all public and private correctional institutions that house adults or juveniles.
The reports below reflect the data we collect and analyze each year.
