PREA (Prison Rape Elimination Act) Compliance
JRL has a ZERO Tolerance Policy for PREA concerns
Zero Tolerance means that no sexual act, contact or harassment, will be tolerated between any inmate with another inmate and/or between an inmate and an employee per South Carolina Code of Laws §44-23-1150. Staff found guilty of such violations will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including immediate termination and possible criminal prosecution. Inmates will be subject to disciplinary action consistent with the requirements of the J. Reuben Long Detention Center inmate disciplinary procedures and may be subject to criminal prosecution.
Reuben Long Detention Center is committed to its zero-tolerance policy of sexual assault and sexual victimization. Our policy affects every employee and person under the supervision of the facility. Report an assault or sexual victimization to a staff member, in writing or call (843) 248-1520. Reports will be kept as confidential as the circumstance allows.
