Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) for Tribal Facilities

PREA Assistance for Tribal Facilities 
New from the American Probation and Parole Association (APPA) is a series of materials providing background on the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 as it relates to its implementation in Indian Country. Titled Preventing and Addressing Sexual Abuse in Tribal Detention Facilities, the series aims to enhance understanding among leaders and correctional staff about the importance of PREA, the seriousness of sexual assault in correctional facilities, and what role each person can play in developing and implementing effective strategies for the prevention of sexual assault in the future. Materials from the series include:

Brochure—an overview of PREA and its application in tribal facilities
Bulletin—full-length report expanding on the topics covered in the brochure
A Policy Development Guide—detailed instruction on to how implement the essentials of PREA in a facility
Training Curriculum, Participant Manual, and PowerPoint Presentation—training materials for instructors of line staff employees

All of the resources mentioned can be downloaded from the following webpage: http://www.appa-net.org/eweb/Dynamicpage.aspx?webcode=IV_ProjectDetail&wps_key=386afa46-0796-4e80-8aa6-73afdee32923

Again, these resources specifically address tribal detention facilities, but they are a good starting point for lockups as well. Standards for lockups will be forthcoming from DOJ.
