  • Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)
    The Oregon Department of Corrections has a zero tolerance for sexual abuse. The Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 is a federal law that seeks to eliminate sexual assaults and sexual misconduct. This law applies to all federal and state prisons, jails, police lock-ups, private facilities, juvenile facilities, and community correctional settings.
Reporting Documents and Resources
Inmates who are currently being sexually harassed, abused, or assaulted are encouraged to talk to a staff member. This will allow for the quickest response. Each institution has a Sexual Assault Response Team that can respond and ensure needed services are afforded.

Inmates may report in person, through an inmate communication, or through the grievance system.

The DOC has an Inspector General Hotline that is toll free.
Public and Staff can report PREA allegations privately by dialing the toll-free number: (877) 678-4222
