Retention Memo to ICE for CRCL Investigation Concerning Implementation of ICE's Sexual Abuse and Assault Prevention and Intervention Program

Since its inception, CRCL has investigated sexual abuse allegations and recommended improvement in policies designed to protect individuals from sexual abuse while in DHS custody. In March 2014, DHS issued a final rule, Standards to Prevent, Detect, and Respond to Sexual as Abuse it applies and Assault (DHS PREA Standards), implementing PREA to DHS in confinement facilities. Since 2014, ICE has been actively engaged in implementing the specific requirements in the DHS PREA Standards, and CRCL has worked with ICE as part of that process. With the passing of the fifth anniversary of the DHS PREA Standards, CRCL conducted a periodic review of ICE's Sexual Abuse and Assault Prevention and Intervention Program with a particular focus on how ICE Headquarters has established and implemented the requirements in the DHS PREA Standards.
