Date & Time: Thursday, April 17, 2014, 3:00pm-4:30pm Eastern Standard Time
The PREA Resource Center and Vera Institute of Justice invite you to
join us for a webinar on the PREA audit experience. In this webinar,
PREA Resource Center Co-Director Michela Bowman will describe the audit
cycle, instruments, and key phases of a PREA audit. Steve Jett of the
Southwest Idaho Juvenile Detention Center – the first juvenile facility
in the United States to be certified as compliant with the PREA
standards – will then discuss how he prepared his facility for the
audit, hired an auditor, what happened during the actual audit, and what
steps he took during the corrective action period. Director Jett will
share the lessons he learned along the way and recommendations for other
practitioners embarking on a PREA audit.
