PREA Essentials and Upcoming 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:

PREA Essentials
e PRC recently released a new resource page on its website titled PREA Essentials. This page is intended to guide professionals in their implementation of specific standards. Each category contains (1) a brief synopsis summarizing the standards in that category; (2) links to an online version of those standards; (3) links to helpful resources related to those standards sorted by correctional facility type; and (4) where relevant, a discussion of some key issues raised by those particular standards. The issues and resources are not exhaustive, but rather offer a snapshot of those that may be of particular interest to practitioners working to comply with the standards. Additional resources will be added as they are made available.
