Sexual Abuse/PREA

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has a zero-tolerance policy for all forms of sexual abuse or assault. ICE maintains a Sexual Abuse and Assault Prevention and Intervention (SAAPI) Program that ensures effective procedures for preventing, reporting, responding to, investigating, and tracking incidents or allegations of sexual abuse or assault against individuals in ICE detention. ICE is committed to safety and security in all its detention and holding facilities.

ICE provides detainees and their attorneys, family, friends, and associates multiple ways to report sexual abuse, retaliation for reporting sexual abuse, or staff neglect or violations of responsibilities that may have contributed to such incidents. Third parties not connected to a detainee can also report these allegations. Reports are confidential and may be made anonymously, both verbally and in writing.

The following link provides information regarding how to report detainee sexual abuse, SAAPI related ICE regulation and policies, DHS PREA facility audits, and SAAPI statistics.
