How do I report sexual harassment or abuse to the Correctional Work Center?

Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)
The Rutherford County Correctional Work Center maintains a ZERO TOLERANCE in keeping with Public Law 108-79, the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) of 2003, which will enhance intervention, documentation, reporting, and investigating procedures. The Rutherford County Correctional Work Center has mandated a zero-tolerance towards all forms of sexual abuse and sexual harassment. Such conduct is prohibited and will not be tolerated; to include inmate-on-inmate sexual abuse or harassment and employee-on-inmate sexual abuse or harassment. It is Rutherford County Correctional Work Center's policy to aggressively investigate all allegations, regardless of source, and prosecute those who are involved in incidents of sexual abuse. Criminal investigations will be referred to the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office and/or Murfreesboro Police Department Detective Division. Alleged victims of sexual abuse or harassment will be provided a supportive and protective environment. The credibility of an alleged victim, suspect, or witness is assessed on an individual basis and not determined by the person's status as inmate or staff.

Citizens can make third-party notifications of sexual abuse or sexual harassment, or staff neglect that may have contributed to an incident of sexual abuse in writing to the Superintendent at 1720 S. Church St. Murfreesboro, TN 37130 or call the 24/7 Sexual Assault line at 615-494-9262
