National Prison Rape Elimination Commission

Federal Register Link

The National Prison Rape Elimination Commission (NPREC) was established in 2003 as a bipartisan commission under the authority of the Prison Rape Elimination Act. The Commission was created to study Federal, State and local government policies and practices related to the prevention, detection, response and monitoring of sexual abuse in correction and detention facilities in the United States. Consistent with the Act, the Commission made recommendations designed to make the prevention of rape a top priority in America’s jails, prisons, lockups, juvenile facilities, and other detention facilities. The Commission was terminated on August 22, 2009 after submitting its final report in June 2009.
