PREA: Training for Investigators of Sexual Abuse in Confinement Settings
Hosted by: Sheriff Al Cannon Detention Center
Instructors: Isaiah Dennard and Jillian Shane
This two-day class is designed specifically for investigators who are responsible for examining allegations (administrative and criminal) of sexual abuse in confinement settings. The course aligns with the requirements of the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) Standard §115.34 (§115.134, §115.234, §115.334), Specialized Training: Investigations. Topics covered include techniques for interviewing sexual abuse victims; proper use of Miranda and Garrity warnings; sexual abuse evidence collection in confinement settings; and criteria and evidence required to substantiate a case for administrative action or prosecution referral. Participants also review the PREA standards that apply to investigations, and have an opportunity to consider the facts of real allegations made by inmates in confinement. This course is designed to meet the PREA requirement for specialized training for investigators. It does not substitute for the general training and basic experience to qualify someone as an investigator.
