Prison Rape Elimination Act

The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) was passed in 2003 with unanimous support from both parties in Congress. The purpose of the Act was to “provide for the analysis of the incidence and effects of prison rape in Federal, State and Local institutions and to provide information, resources, recommendations and funding to protect individuals from prison rape.” This law applies to all public and private institutions that house adult or juvenile offenders. The Oklahoma County Detention Center (OCDC) is committed to a zero-tolerance standard towards all forms of sexual abuse and sexual harassment between employees, volunteers or contractors and offenders as well as offender upon offender sexual abuse or harassment. 

How to Report Incidents of Sexual Assault or Sexual Abuse
OCDC accepts and investigates reports regarding allegations or knowledge of sexual abuse of residents from third parties (family, friends, clergy, vendors, contractors, or any other person having knowledge of an incident).
