NORTHWEST REGIONAL RE-ENTRY CENTER
PREA Annual Statement 2018
In 2018, NWRRC has continued an agency-wide commitment to promote the safety and well-being of our residents. One aspect of this commitment is to ensure that reports of PREA-related incidents are taken seriously and thoroughly investigated. Staff members who have received PREA investigation training conduct a preliminary fact-finding investigation. Based on the information gathered, the information may be turned over to the Bureau of Prisons to conduct an investigation based on their protocol. When the incident appears to be criminal in nature, the Portland Police Bureau is contacted to conduct an investigation, following their investigative protocol. The NWRRC PREA coordinator tracks all reports from the date they are received through the conclusion of the investigation, and if warranted, through the prosecution proceedings. During 2018, six PREA reports were made and investigated. The outcome of those reports is as follows:
3 resident-on-resident reports of sexual harassment were made.
Investigation Outcome: 2 were substantiated, 1 was unfounded
1 staff-on-resident report of sexual harassment was made.
Investigation Outcome: unfounded
1 staff-on-resident report of sexual assault was made.
Investigation Outcome: unfounded.
1 staff-on-resident report of sexual harassment that allegedly occurred at another facility was reported. The information was sent to the facility where the behavior allegedly occurred to enable them to conduct their own investigation. After the resident released from NWRRC, contact information was provided to the investigating facility to enable them to notify the resident of the outcome of the investigation.
Investigation Outcome: unknown
