Resource Details

The PREA standards provide an unprecedented opportunity for advocacy programs to begin working with survivors in detention. This resource guide seeks to make it a little easier to do so. In this guide Just Detention International and the Resource Sharing Project provide a brief overview of who the victims and perpetrators of sexual abuse in detention are; what the difference is between prisons, jails, and other types of facilities; the roles and responsibilities of various corrections officials; and some terminology that you will benefit from understanding as you step through the gates of your local facility.
