Prison Rape Elimination Act
The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) was signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2003. Neither sexual conduct between inmates nor sexual conduct among staff and inmates is ever permitted. Such reports will be investigated and subject to criminal actions. Medical treatment and counseling will be provided to victims.
The Porter County Juvenile Detention Center enforces the Prison Rape Elimination Act and will prosecute.
To report sexual misconduct:
