PRC July Event Announcements

The following is a summary of resources, upcoming events, and webinars offered by the National PREA Resource Center (PRC), operated by the National Council on Crime and Delinquency through a cooperative agreement with the Bureau of Justice Assistance.

 

PREA Essentials

The PRC recently released a new resource page on its website titled PREA Essentials . This page is intended to guide professionals in their implementation of specific standards. Each category contains (1) a brief synopsis summarizing the standards in that category; (2) links to an online version of those standards; (3) links to helpful resources related to those standards sorted by correctional facility type; and (4) where relevant, a discussion of some key issues raised by those particular standards. The issues and resources are not exhaustive, but rather offer a snapshot of those that may be of particular interest to practitioners working to comply with the standards. Additional resources will be added as they are made available. Click here to access the PREA Essentials page.

 

Library Resource Added: Specialized Training in Medical/Mental Health

The National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC) has posted video segments from the April 2013 regional training for medical/mental health care staff in Denver, Colorado. The video segments include high-quality images of the presentation slides. Transcripts from the presentations are also available. See below for information about upcoming NCCHC presentations later in July.
