PREA (Prison Rape Elimination Act)
Report Sexual Abuse at Alvis
At Alvis, client safety has always been a priority, and our leadership and staff approach the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) as one more way of ensuring a safe, healthy culture. Like many in corrections who have embraced PREA, the leaders at Alvis have employed current best practices in community corrections to help prevent sexual abuse. For example, Alvis uses gender-responsive classifications and treatment tools, motivational interviewing techniques, and individualized case management practices to run safe facilities. By leveraging Alvis' existing policies and practices to help prevent sexual abuse and improve response when it does happen, leaders have avoided creating a PREA bureaucracy, instead establishing a nimble system that prioritizes staff training and clear policies and procedures that protect the safety and well being of clients.
