PREA Requirements

The PREA program is a national program administered by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP). The goal of the PREA program is to assist efforts to establish "zero tolerance" cultures related to sexual abuse and harassment in confinement facilities. As defined in PREA program guidance, "confinement facilities" include: jails, police lockups, prisons, juvenile facilities, and community confinement facilities.

Florida receives a PREA allocation as part of the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) program. Under the PREA program, all funds must be used to implement initiatives to reduce, eliminate, and/or mitigate the risk of prison rape.

The table below shows the funding breakdown for Florida's PREA program for the past five years.
