The Office of Justice Programs (OJP) announces that the Review Panel on Prison Rape (Panel) will hold hearings in Washington, DC, on January 8-9, 2014. The hearing times and location are noted below. The purpose of the hearings is to assist the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) in identifying common characteristics of victims and perpetrators of sexual victimization in U.S. prisons, jails, and juvenile facilities, and the common characteristics of U.S. prisons, jails, and juvenile facilities with the highest and lowest incidence of rape, respectively, based on anonymous surveys by the BJS of inmates and youth in representative samples of U.S. prisons, jails, and juvenile facilities. In May 2013, the BJS issued the report Sexual Victimization in Prisons and Jails Reported by Inmates, 2011-12. The report provides a listing of prisons and jails grouped according to the prevalence of reported sexual victimization, and formed the basis of the Panel's decision about which prison and jail facilities would be the subject of testimony. In June 2013, the BJS issued the report Sexual Victimization in Juvenile Facilities Reported by Youth, 2012. The report provides a listing of juvenile facilities grouped according to the prevalence of reported sexual victimization, and formed the basis of the Panel's decision about which juvenile facilities would be the subject of testimony.
