Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)

In accordance with the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 the Valley County Sheriff’s Office has established a ZERO-TOLERANCE standard against sexual assault and harassment of inmates. PREA sets the standard that protects Eighth Amendment rights of federal, state, and local prisoners, making the prevention of sexual assault a top priority. The Valley County Sheriff’s Office has developed uniform guidelines and procedures to reduce the risk of in-custody sexual assaults and sexual harassment.

Reporting to the Valley County Sheriff’s Office

Victims of sexual assault while in custody can report several different ways.

    • Report to a staff member.
    • Submit an Inmate Kite to the Medical Deputy.
    • Call someone outside the jail (friend, family) that can contact jail administration on their behalf.
    • Report the allegation to the national PREA hotline 1-800-656-4673.
    • Report it to Rose Advocates in Cascade, ID 208-382-5310.
    • Report it to your attorney.

    If a victim is no longer in custody they can call Valley County Detention Center Administration at 208-382-7164 or 208-382-7155.  Family and Friends that receive information about an incident can contact Valley County Detention Center Administration on an inmate’s behalf.

All reports will remain anonymous. If you fail to report an incident, you could be found to have acted with deliberate indifference towards the victim’s health and/or safety.  If you file a false report it could result in criminal charges.

All reported incidents will be investigated by an agency with the legal authority to conduct criminal investigations in the Valley County Detention Center.
