How inmates can report sexual abuse

Our long-established zero tolerance policy – known as the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) – helps us to provide a safe and secure environment for our inmates against sexual assault, abuse or harassment.

All incidents of sexual misconduct or harassment involving Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department staff are reported to the Security and Internal Affairs Bureau.

To report sexual abuse at any Miami-Dade County Corrections and Rehabilitation Detention Center

  • Use an inmate phone to call the confidential hotline
  • Speak to any staff member, supervisor, chaplain, counselor, health care or mental health care worker

If you have any information regarding an inmate who has been sexually abused in any of our detention facilities, we urge you to immediately report it by calling the Security and Internal Affairs Bureau.
