Prison Rape Elimination Act

On September 4, 2003, President George W. Bush signed into law the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003. The legislation required the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) to develop a new national data collection on the incidence and prevalence of sexual assault within correctional facilities. The final rule was published in the federal register on June 20, 2012, and became effective on August 20, 2012.
MCCF has implemented a written policy mandating ZERO TOLERANCE toward all forms of sexual abuse and sexual harassment and outlining the agency’s approach to preventing, detecting, and responding to such conduct.  MCCF is committed to providing a sexually safe environment for all inmates in our care and custody.  
MCCF will accept third party reports of sexual abuse and sexual harassment on behalf of inmates incarcerated at MCCF. Reports can be made anonymously. The contact information for third-party reporting is as follows:
