The Prison Rape Elimination Act (“PREA”) was signed into federal law in 2003. In 2012, The U.S. Department of Justice finalized national PREA Standards. The Norfolk County Sheriff’s Office (NSO) is committed to adhering to the PREA standards in order to continue to prevent, detect and respond to all incidents of sexual abuse and sexual harassment alleged to have occurred in the facility.

The NSO has zero tolerance of inmate sexual abuse and sexual harassment and accepts all reports of sexual abuse and sexual harassment whether made verbally, in writing, anonymously or from third parties. There is no time limit on when an incident of sexual abuse or sexual harassment can be reported.

Every allegation of inmate sexual abuse and sexual harassment is thoroughly investigated by the NSO. Where warranted by evidence, proportional sanctions up to and including criminal prosecution are implemented.

To report incidents of sexual abuse or sexual harassment, please contact: Info@NorfolkSheriffMA.org.
