Topic: Letter of The Law / Is your agency ready for PREA?

You know it’s coming! Let the National Curriculum and Training Institute (NCTI) assist you.

Preventing Sexual Misconduct Against Offenders: From NCTI In Partnership With the American Probation and Parole Association (APPA).

The standards adopted by the Department of Justice (DOJ) relating to the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) will require criminal justice agencies to provide extensive training to staff, volunteers, and auxiliary personnel. This applies to all criminal justice agencies housing juvenile and adult offenders, including adult and juvenile probation residential facilities, parole and community corrrections facilities, lockups, jails, and prison agencies. Additionally the new standards will require agencies to adopt policies regarding zero tolerance, incident investigations, appropriate screening, and more.

NCTI’s Preventing Sexual Misconduct Against Offenders Workshop and Facilitator Certification Training address the staff training standards adopted by the Department of Justice, and provides agencies with prevention and identification strategies to reduce incidences of sexual misconduct.

Agency and Staff Benefits
•Awareness and prevention of sexual misconduct against offenders
•Reduction of agency and staff liability
•Reduction in negligence by providing training accredited by the American Probation and Parole Association in the area of PREA
•Compliance with the Department of Justice (DOJ) training standards
•Identification of other DOJ PREA training standards for policy and procedure revision.
•Address failure to train issues
