In this webinar you will learn how the implementation of the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)* was supported by the development of a consensus-based PREA Data Standard. The IJIS Institute developed and recently implemented this standard in state correctional facilities in Iowa, Arkansas and New Mexico. You will hear the agency leaders from these three states discuss the value their agencies are receiving from the recent implementation of the PREA Data Standard. The agency leaders will share why they believe the PREA Data Standard will provide tremendous benefits through a wider implementation across the country, making the PREA Data Standard a truly national standard.
* On September 4, 2003, President George W. Bush signed into law the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) of 2003. This legislation required the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) to develop a new national data collection system on the incidence and prevalence of sexual assault within correctional facilities.
