Law 108-79, 117 Stat. 972 (codified as amended at 42 U.S.C. 15601-15609 
(2006)), will hold its initial hearing on November 14-15, 2006, to 
carry out the review functions specified at 42 U.S.C. 15603(b)(3)(A). 
Results from this hearing will assist the Panel in formulating the 
questions that it will ask various facilities (including prisons, 
jails, and lockups at locations throughout the United States) at future 
hearings of the Review Panel to discern the best practices for 
deterring prison rape.

CDCR:
     The factors in a prison environment conducive to deterring 
sexual assaults;
     The prison system protocols and policies requiring 
examination by the Panel;
     The staff persons in large systems that could be potential 
key witnesses at future Panel hearings;
     Useful methods for evaluating prison rape training of 
correctional officers and medical staff;
     Likely barriers to reporting, investigation, and 
deterrence of prison rape; and
     Useful methods for assessing the role of correctional 
officers' unions in deterring prison rape.
    The Panel's decision to hold its initial hearing at the California 
State Prison in Sacramento is not based upon any ranking or finding by 
the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) concerning the incidence of 
prison rape in any facility of the CDCR. The BJS rankings of all State 
and federal facilities (both adult and juvenile) by incidence of prison 
rape are expected to be completed by June 30, 2007.
    Members of the public who wish to attend the hearing must present 
photo identification upon entrance to the facility. Pursuant to CDCR 
rules and regulations, additional identification documentation may be 
required. Space is limited. Special needs requests should be made to
