Can you please give me an example of the language that is used in contracts regarding being compliant with PREA standards? We are working on contracts right now and need to include this.
Hi here is what Georgia uses and we are looking at using in our contracts. I talked to Adam from Georgia and they ran it through all the legal reviews and standard reviews from the top down and it held up. It is simple and leaves room for the auditing of the program, as is required by standards, but puts the compliance on the program. It is impossible to micro manage these programs, but we are required to audit 1/3 of our facilities and contracted facilities each year starting August 2013 and finish in a three year cycle.
Contractor will comply with the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (Federal Law 42. U.S.C. 15601 ET. Seq.), and with all applicable PREA Standards, DJJ Policies related to PREA and DJJ Standards related to PREA for preventing, detecting, monitoring, investigating, and eradicating any form of sexual abuse within DJJ Facilities/Programs /Offices owned, operated or contracted. Contractor acknowledges that, in addition to "self-monitoring requirements" DJJ will conduct announced or unannounced, compliance monitoring to include "on-site" monitoring. Failure to comply with PREA, including PREA Standards and DJJ Policies may result in termination of the contract”
Can anyone send the wording or changes they have made in job applications, job postings, supplimental questions and performance reviews in order to capture any former on current sexual abuse charges or allegations and any changes you made in capturing any work perspective employee did in other facilities or institutions to meet standard: 115.317
I am wondering if anyone or states has implemented sexual harassment into their policy or training as of yet?
We are working on adding it into training, however, I wanted to know what others are using for specific definitions or are we required to use the standard definition as a result of the final standards?
We are looking to replace our camera system in JDC with the best of the best. Do any of you have any suggestions on vendors that we should contact that offer a quality product at a reasonable up front rate, with a low ongoing maintenance cost?
I am trying out an new blogging site where we can communicate and post questions and answers to each others enquiries. Try it out and see if it does not enhance our communication with each other
If you have a question or solution to anything PREA, click "new post" and give it a title that we all will recognize and type whatever you want to know or need help with or have help for. Try it out
