Confinement facilities must undergo formal Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) compliance audits once during each three-year audit cycle to remain compliant. This session will give agency staff assigned to PREA-related duties an opportunity to learn about and discuss the Department of Justice (DOJ) PREA Auditor Handbook, a critical audit preparation resource that many practitioners overlook. Get insight into how to use the handbook as a tool for supporting ongoing sexual safety efforts. Facilitators will share experience evaluating, training, implementing, and auditing PREA standards, and will offer guidance on how the handbook provides an advantage in preparation for each stage of a PREA audit.
- Learn core auditing topics, key information, and resources outlined in the DOJ PREA Auditor Handbook that can benefit agencies/facilities undergoing PREA audits.
- Identify the audit process methodology expectations used by DOJ PREA auditors and apply them to determine agency/facility compliance with PREA standards.
- Gain knowledge of the audit process, auditor core activities, and documentation that agencies/facilities must produce as part of a PREA audit.
