They will determine if sexual assault is occurring in these facilities and pursue avenues in preventing these incidences from occurring. Their focus in using 2014 PREA funds will be general prevention planning. This will include educating and training correctional officers at the Tafuna Correctional Facility and the Juvenile Detention Facility. They will also audit their facilities using a certified PREA auditor.
