Preventing Sexual Misconduct Against Offenders: www.preatraining.org/

This website provides information on training relevant to the standards adopted by the Department of Justice (DOJ) relating to the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA). These standards will require criminal justice agencies to provide extensive training to staff, volunteers, and auxiliary personnel. This applies to all criminal justice agencies housing juvenile and adult offenders, including adult and juvenile probation residential facilities, parole and community corrections facilities, lockups, jails, and prison agencies. Additionally the new standards will require agencies to adopt policies regarding zero tolerance, incident investigations, appropriate screening, and more.

 

DEA Launches New Educational Website for Parents: GetSmartAboutDrugs.com

GetSmartAboutDrugs.com was developed as a resource for parents and caregivers to help them identify drug abuse, prevent children from using drugs, and find resources for substance abuse prevention in an informative, non-technical manner.

The website was introduced February 11 at the annual National Leadership Forum of one of DEA’s partner organizations, the Community Anti-Drugs Coalition of America. Speaking to forum participants, Acting Administrator Michele M. Leonhart said, “In this fight, information is power, and DEA’s new website has current, accurate, and practical information about how to spot signs of abuse, identify drugs and paraphernalia, and how to talk to teens about drugs.” GetSmartAboutDrugs.com is a follow-up to DEA’s highly popular site for teens, JustThinkTwice.com.
