Abstract:     
This is a side by side comparison chart of the National Prison Rape Elimination Standards and the newly revised U.S. Department of Justice Standards.

This comparison chart was developed as an analytical tool and to assist individuals and organizations in understanding and commenting on the standards. Each chart contains: (1) the initial National Prison Rape Elimination Commission (NPREC) standard; (2) the revised DOJ standard; (3) DOJ’s reasoning for the change to the extent they provided one; (4) questions DOJ posed in relation to that specific standard; and (5) an area for analysis.
