Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) PDF Print E-mail
The Prison Rape Elimination Act, otherwise known as PREA, is a federal regulation. The regulation requires the elimination, reduction and prevention of sexual assault and rape in this facility.

The Hampshire Jail and House of Correction (HJHC) supports PREA by enforcing a Zero Tolerance Policy for Sexual Assault/Abuse/Victimization and Harassment in its facilities.

This Zero-Tolerance Policy affects all of the HJHC, including every employee, contractor, volunteer, visitor and every person under correctional supervision.

Report any assaults or victimizations that are sexual in nature to a staff member, in writing or call the Toll Free Hotline (413) 584-0591.

Any reports will be kept as confidential as the circumstance allows.

According to section 115.89 (b) of the Prison Rape Elimination Act, PREA, the Hampshire Jail and House of Correction is required to provide the public aggregated sexual abuse data relative to its facility. The link below will display the data for the previous calendar year:
