Sexual abuse and sexual harassment seriously hampers the mission of the Nez Perce County to provide a safe and secure environment for Adult Detention Center inmates and staff. The Adult Detention Center endeavors to comply with training standards in accordance with the Federal PREA (Prison Rape Elimination Act) rule. The Adult Detention Center has zero tolerance with regard to sexual abuse and sexual harassment in this facility and will take appropriate affirmative measures to protect all inmates from sexual abuse and harassment and to promptly and thoroughly investigate all allegations of sexual abuse and sexual harassment.
The Nez Perce County Adult Detention Center has developed policy and procedures to reduce the risk of in-custody sexual assaults and will ensure that an investigation is completed for all allegations of sexual abuse and sexual harassment.
Should an investigation result in possible criminal charges the investigation will be conducted by an agency with the legal authority to conduct criminal investigations.
If you were a victim or if you suspect abuse has happened in this facility, you are urged to call the Detention Center administration at 208-799-3139 and ask to speak to a supervisor. Reports may also be made in writing, anonymously and from third parties. Report anonymously, if you want, to an outside agency by calling the Latah County Sheriff’s Office at 208-883-5705.
