Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $6,455)
Congress passed the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) in 2003 with unanimous support from both parties. Congress intended that PREA would provide for the analysis of the incidence and effects of prison rape in Federal, State, and local institutions and to provide information, resources, recommendations, and funding to protect individuals from prison rape.
Hawaii will use funding to purchase more up to date surveillance equipment for facilities.
