A "zero tolerance" policy toward rape in custodial settings

Step-by-step explanation

On September 4, 2003, President George W. Bush signed into law the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) of 2003 (P.L. 108-79). The goal of PREA is to eradicate prisoner rape in all types of correctional facilities in this country. The standards have three clear goals: to prevent, detect and respond to sexual abuse.
