Upcoming PREA Webinars from PRC
Thinking About Corrections


The National PREA Resource Center (PRC), operated by the National Council on Crime and Delinquency through a cooperative agreement with the Bureau of Justice Assistance will be offering several PREA webinars during Spring 2013. Check the the PRC website for the most up-to-date information.  All are free to attend. From the PRC Website:

Audit Instrument
The PRC is working with the DOJ to finalize the audit instrument for the PREA Standards for Juvenile Facilities, which will be available sometime early this summer. The audit instruments for PREA Standards for Community Confinement Facilities and Lockups will be in development this summer and available in the fall of 2013.

In June 2013, the PRC will train the first group of auditors to be certified by the DOJ and prepared to audit facilities by the beginning of the first audit cycle: August 20, 2013. Participation in this training is by invitation only; future trainings will be open to all qualified individuals via an application process. Details about the application process and required qualifications will be posted on the PRC website when available.

The PRC will host a webinar to explain the instrument and the auditing process on Thursday, June 13, 2013, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. (EDT). Click here to learn more. Click here to register.

You can find additional information on the auditing process as well as the complete instrument here.
