The Internal Investigations Officers and facility leadership who conduct internal investigations will receive necessary training and equipment to further improve the quality of the internal investigative process. Staff and youth will receive additional PREA materials, education and training to evaluate their competencies regarding PREA and the integration of practices to create a zero tolerance system of sexual misconduct.
