Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)

The Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 is a US Federal Law dealing with sexual assault in confinement facilities. The purpose of PREA is to prevent, detect, and respond to sexual misconduct, sexual abuse and sexual harassment in confinement facilities.


The Butte County Probation Department and Juvenile Hall have made the prevention of sexual misconduct a top priority. We have a zero tolerance policy with it comes to youth in our custody being subjected to any type of sexual abuse, sexual rape, sexual harassment, sexual contact, sexual assault, or other types of misconduct. All of our employees, independent contractors, volunteers, interns, and other persons working within the confines of the Juvenile Hall and having any amount of contact with youth in our custody acknowledge and understand the policy.


Misconduct, as it pertains to this policy, is defined as any behavior or act of a sexual nature directed toward a person under the care, custody, or supervision of the department.
