Youth Services Center

In accordance with the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) of 2003, the Bernalillo County Youth Services Center has established a zero-tolerance standard regarding the incidence of sexual misconduct.

By providing training, education and reviewing our policies and procedures on an ongoing basis, we are confident that we are providing the residents (detained youth), staff, contractors and volunteers with a facility environment which is in compliance with PREA mandates.

We are also confident that all of our staff, contractors and volunteers have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the PREA mandates and the Bernalillo County Youth Services Center policy and procedures in order to effectively ensure prevention strategies are in place, detection mechanisms are utilized, and responses/investigations to any allegations of sexual abuse or harassment are thorough, timely and objective. The purpose of PREA is the ultimate elimination of sexual misconduct within detention facilities, including the Bernalillo County Youth Services Center.
