Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)

The Grant County Detention Center has a zero-tolerance policy of sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, and the assault or rape of inmates by an individual or group. This Policy includes, but is not limited to other offenders, volunteers, contractors, jail staff, or other agency personnel.

Reporting PREA Allegations

Inmates, their families or their associates may report allegations of sexual harassment, misconduct, assault and/or rape. The report may be made verbally or in writing to any volunteer, contractor, jail employee, or other law enforcement member. Offenders alleging victimization in a sexual manner will be provided the same level of law enforcement service, treatment, and care as non-offenders.

Inmates may report any harassment, assault, or victimization that is sexual in nature, to any staff member verbally, in writing, or confidentially by phone. All reports will be kept confidential to the extent circumstances allow.
