PREA (Prison Rape Elimination Act) Compliance

RACDC has a ZERO Tolerance Policy for PREA concerns

Zero Tolerance means that no sexual act, contact or harassment, will be tolerated between any inmate with another inmate and/or between an inmate and an employee. Staff found guilty of such violations will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including immediate termination and possible criminal prosecution. Inmates will be subject to disciplinary action consistent with the requirements of Rio Arriba County Detention Center's inmate disciplinary procedures, and may be subject to criminal prosecution.

Rio Arriba County Detention Center is committed to its “zero-tolerance policy” of sexual assault and sexual victimization. This zero-tolerance policy affects every employee and every person under Rio Arriba County Detention supervision. Report any assaults or victimizations that are sexual in nature to a staff member, in writing or call (505)927-5732, Larry DeYapp Detention Administrator’s cell phone. Any reports will be kept as confidential, as the circumstance allows.

Complaints or questions can be forwarded to Larry DeYapp, Detention Administrator
