Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)

The Cumberland County Prison maintains a zero tolerance for offender-on-offender sexual activity, including but not limited to sexual abuse or assault, and staff sexual misconduct and sexual harassment towards offenders. Every allegation of sexual assault/misconduct and harassment is thoroughly investigated. This zero tolerance policy is applicable to all prison staff, contracted vendor staff, service providers, and volunteers. Any allegations and/or incidents of this nature should be reported to prison authorities as soon as possible.
