Standard 115.22 – Policies to ensure referrals of allegations for investigations

 PREA stands for Prison Rape Elimination Act. It is the Meade County Detention Center’s duty to serve and protect the inmate’s well-being while they’re housed at the detention center. Inmates have the right to be free from any sexual harassment, sexual abuse or sexual misconduct from inmates as well as staff members. The detention center will not tolerate such conduct.

If any allegations of sexual abuse, sexual harassment, or sexual misconduct are brought to our attention, an Administration investigation will be conducted by the Jailer, Chief Deputy and the appointed PREA officers. If the allegations deem serious on a criminal level, Kentucky State Police will be contacted immediately in reference to the alleged allegations.

When a criminal case is turned over to the local police department it’s their responsibility to complete a follow up investigative interview with the suspect and victim.



Section 115.11 of the National PREA Standards implements a “Zero Tolerance of sexual abuse and sexual harassment” within a correctional facility. Regarding the “Zero Tolerance standard,” the Meade County Detention Center has developed a policy to deter and maintain any form of misconduct between staff and inmate, or inmate to inmate misconduct.

As a facility, it is our responsibility to serve and protect the well-being of every individual in our custody. MCDC does not condone nor tolerate any type of sexual assault, sexual exploitation, sexual misconduct, sexual abuse or sexual harassment toward an inmate or staff member.

If you, or if you know of any persons, who has or who is currently a victim of sexual misconduct, please notify an on-duty Sergeant. The PREA hotline is also available at 1-800-700-7732. Our facility also has a PREA tab on the kiosk where any allegations of abuse can be reported directly to Detention Center Administration.

Note: any false accusations will not be tolerated
