ADOC policy: zero-tolerance

Posted: Updated:

ADOC says it has a zero-tolerance for inmate sexual offenses and custodial sexual misconduct.

"Departmental practices and procedures are in place to help identify, monitor, and track alleged sexual assaults and sexual misconduct; to maintain statistics ensuring compliance with the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA); and to take appropriate actions against employees found in violation."

"When the Department is made aware of alleged sexual misconduct, including incidents involving a staff member and inmate, an investigation is immediately begun.  Upon a finding of wrongdoing, personnel action - including dismissal from employment – is taken against the employee.  In addition, in each case the matter is referred to the local district attorney for criminal prosecution. "
