Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)
The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) was signed into law in 2003. The goal of PREA is to eradicate prisoner rape in all types of correctional facilities in this country. The Platte County Detention Facility has a zero tolerance policy regarding sexual abuse and fully subscribes to the rules and practices set forth in the Prison Rape Elimination Act. Volunteers/Contractors/Professionals fall under the same policies and procedures as staff in regard to boundaries and contact.
