Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)


Zero Tolerance for Sexual Assault

The Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) mandates a ZERO TOLERANCE toward all forms of sexual abuse and harassment. The Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (PREA) is the first United States federal law passed dealing with the sexual assault of prisoners. The bill was signed into law on September 4, 2003. It established a set of standards that protect the Eight Amendment Right(constitutional right probhiting cruel and unusal punishment) of incarcerated individuals from sexual abuse.

The Prison Rape Elimination Act applies to:

  • All public and private institutions that house adult or juvenile offenders and to community-based correctional agencies.
  • Staff working in correctional settings who may receive a report of sexual abuse either between inmates or of a staff member toward an inmate.

The Office of Victim Services will ensure that all victims of sexual assault in our facilities will receive the same level of services as victims in the community.
