Prison Rape Elimination Act Compliance
The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) requires that the JDC collect accurate, uniform data for every allegation of sexual abuse at the facility using a standardized instrument and set of definitions. This information shall be aggregated at least annually. The data collected shall include, at a minimum, the data necessary to answer all questions from the most recent version of the Survey of Sexual Violence conducted by the Department of Justice.
For the past calendar year, the Loudoun County Juvenile Detention Center has not had any allegations of sexual abuse.
Per PREA Standards §115.393 – 405, the JDC was audited in June 2019. The JDC is fully PREA compliant. The most recent audit report can be viewed here. The JDC is audited for PREA compliance every three years.
