Welcome to the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio
Reporting Sexual Abuse
The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) establishes a zero-tolerance standard against sexual assaults and rapes of incarcerated persons. It is Public Law 108-79, signed in September 2003 by President Bush.
The Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio (CCNO) supports the prosecution of persons who commit acts of sexual misconduct (staff and inmate sexual activity) and inmate on inmate sexual assault in its facility. The CCNO has developed uniform guidelines and procedures to reduce the risk of in-custody sexual assault and sexual activity. This includes sexual harassing and sexual intimidating behavior. The CCNO is committed to a zero-tolerance standard for sexual misconduct and sexual assault.
You can learn more about PREA at the Web sites for the National Institute of Corrections and the National Prison Rape Elimination Commission.
Sexual Abuse Reporting
If you were the victim of a sexual assault while in the custody of any law enforcement agency or CCNO -- or if you know of an incident of sexual assault of a person in the custody of any law enforcement agency or CCNO -- we urge you to report the incident by contacting the CCNO Investigator at (419) 428-3800 extension 315. If you fail to report an incident, you could be found to have acted with deliberate indifference towards the victimís health and/or safety. Please help us protect everyone from sexual abuse. Any incarcerated person may report this activity to any CCNO employee, contract employee or volunteer.
All reported incidents will be investigated. You will be contacted, but you may still remain anonymous. You will need to leave the following information with the CCNO Investigator:
Telephone/Cell phone number
Specific details of the incident
Who was the victim?
How do we contact the victim if they are no longer in our facility?
Did the victim know the suspect? If so, please provide their name and contact information if known.
When and where did this happen?
This information can also be e-mailed to email@example.com
