PREA – Prison Rape Elimination Act


The mission of the Pike County Sheriff’s Office is to provide a safe, sanitary, and secure place of incarceration.  It is the ethical and legal obligation of the Pike County Jail Division’s officers to protect the community by securely holding persons who are determined by the courts to pose a threat to public safety.  It is our goal to return inmates to society in better condition physically and emotionally than when they were committed to our custody.  However, the decision of rehabilitation is a personal decision that can only be made by each individual inmate.



The Pike County Sheriff’s Office has a “ZERO TOLERANCE” policy prohibiting the sexual harassment, sexual abuse or voyeurism of any person in our custody.  Per our policy, if any employee discovers that a person in PCSO custody has been sexually abused or sexually harassed or is at substantial risk of imminent sexual abuse, immediate action must be taken to protect him or her.

The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) establishes a “zero-tolerance” standard against sexual abuse and sexual assault of incarcerated persons. It is Public Law 108-79, signed in September 2003 by President Bush.

In addition, PREA sets a standard that protects the Eighth Amendment rights of Federal and State prisons, jails, lock-ups and juvenile facilities-making the prevention of sexual assault a top priority.  it also increases available data on sexual misconducts and sexual assault.  Furthermore, it increases the accountability for administrators who fail to prevent, reduce, and punish sexual misconduct and sexual assaults.


It is our policy to comply with all standards within PREA. In accordance with PREA standard 115.11, Pike County Sheriff’s Office established a “zero-tolerance” policy for all forms of sexual misconduct, incidents involving inmate-on-inmate sexual violence, and all forms of staff sexual misconduct/harassment toward inmates regardless of consensual status. Sexual assault is not tolerated at the Pike County Sheriff’s Office. It is the policy of the Pike County Sheriff’s Office Jail Division that sexual abuse by an employee, vendor, contracted agency, volunteer, inmate or other non-organizational member with a business association with the Sheriff’s Office, is prohibited. This policy applies to all inmates who are identified as being possible victims of sexual abuse or harassment, have been victimized by sexual abuse, or have been identified as perpetrators of sexual abuse or harassment, as well as persons employed by the Pike County Sheriff’s Office, volunteers, independent contractors and those who are involved directly or indirectly, in the care and custody of inmates.


Inmates are encouraged to report all allegations of sexual abuse and/or sexual misconduct immediately. This will allow for the quickest response and investigation. Also, the claim or allegation does not have to come from an inmate; it may come from the members of the public such as a friend, family member or loved one.

Reporting allegations can be made in several ways:

• Report directly to a staff member or via an Inmate Grievance Form.

•     Speak with a Supervisor.

  • Speak with healthcare staff or submit a Medical Form. • Contacting the Pike County Sheriff’s Office. • Inmates can contact a crisis helpline by dialing #885 for free. • Contacting The Women Center, Inc. Crisis Helpline by dialing (800)-334-2094.
