Description

During the week of August 4, 2014, the US Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance conducted a PREA Audit at the Sununu Youth Services Center. As a result, the Center is one of the first Juvenile facilities in the country found to be in compliance with the PREA Standards for Juvenile Facilities. The key to our compliance was the facility's "adoption of zero tolerance policy of sexual abuse and sexual harassment, as well as well-established policies and procedures for preventing, detecting and responding to such conduct." It was apparent that the staff at the Sununu Youth Services Center, with the support of the DCYF team, not only met the standards of PREA, but the spirit of it as well, which is to keep youth and staff safe.
