It is the policy of the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office (NSO) to be in accordance with the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 which prohibits staff, contractors, volunteers, or interns from sexually abusing and/or sexual harassing inmate/detainees (hereinafter referred to as offenders) and that prohibits offenders from sexually abusing other offenders while in our custody. It is a fundamental objective of the NSO and an integral part of all staff to prevent and report assaults and/or sexual harassment as they occur.

The NSO is committed to a Zero Tolerance policy and will continue to comply with the prevention, detection, reduction, and punishment of rape consistent with all provisions of the federally mandated Prison Rape Elimination Act, including any and all standards ultimately promulgated. The NSO will monitor developments in this legislation and direct further action by the Sheriff’s Office as appropriate.

The Norfolk County Sheriff's Office will be undergoing an audit of the Prison Rape Elimination Act in September.
