Prison Rape Elimination Act

PREA Poster

The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) was passed in 2003 with unanimous support from both parties in Congress. The
purpose of the act was to "provide for the analysis of the incidence and effects of prison rape in Federal, State, and local
institutions and to provide information, resources, recommendations, and funing to protect individuals from prison rape."
(Prison Rape Elimination Act, 2003). In addition to creating a mandate for significant research from the Bureau of Justice
Statistics and through the National Institute of Justice, funding through the Bureau of Justice Assistance and the National
Institute of Corrections supported major efforts in many state correctional, juvenile detentions, and jail systems. For more
