At any time, a detainee alleges sexual assault or abuse; the MCADC staff will coordinate a sensitive response and initiate an administrative investigation. All investigations, administrative or criminal, into alleged sexual assault will be prompt, thorough, objective, fair, and conducted by qualified investigators. The MCADC's PREA Investigator will be responsible to conduct an administrative investigation for all allegations of sexual assault or abuse.
Where an alleged victim of sexual abuse and assault that occurred elsewhere is subsequently transferred to the detention facility, the facility shall cooperate with any administrative or criminal investigative efforts arising from the incident.
PRESERVATION OF EVIDENCE
The first security staff member to respond to a report of sexual abuse and assault, or his or her supervisor, shall preserve and protect, to the greatest extent possible, any crime scene until appropriate steps can be taken to collect any evidence. If the abuse occurred within a time period that still allows for the collection of physical evidence, the responder shall request the alleged victim not to take any actions, and shall ensure that the alleged abuser does not take any actions that could destroy physical evidence, including, as appropriate, washing, brushing teeth, changing clothes, urinating, defecating, smoking, drinking, or eating. If the first staff responder is not a security staff member, the responder shall be required to request that the alleged victim not take any actions that could destroy physical evidence and then notify security staff.
When initial evidence suggests that a legitimate case of sexual abuse or assault indeed occurred, the alleged perpetrator will not be interviewed during the administrative investigation, the PSA Coordinator will notify ICE, via the COR and will contact MCSO. As MCSO has law enforcement jurisdiction, they will conduct the criminal investigation. The facility will provide all evidence gathered during the initial on-site investigation to include:
- all physical evidence; and
- all documentation (incident reports) provided by the MCADC staff involved.
The facility's medical staff will only provide care within the scope of their training and certification. Where indicated as necessary, advanced care for victims of sexual assault/abuse will be referred to outside providers qualified to provide such care.
Where evidential or medically appropriate, at no cost to the detainee, and only with the detainee's consent, the Jail Administrator shall arrange for the alleged victim to undergo a forensic medical examination by qualified healthcare personnel, including a Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Examiner (SAFE) or a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) where practicable. These examinations will be performed by the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) at Lake Regional Hospital 54 Hospital Dr., Osage Beach, MO. 65065.
As requested by the victim, the presence of his or her outside victim advocate, including any available victim advocacy services offered by a hospital conducting a forensic exam, will be allowed for support during a forensic exam and investigatory interviews.
The results of the physical examination and all collected physical evidence are to be provided to the investigative entity. Part of the investigative process may also include an examination and collection of physical evidence from the suspected assailant(s). In the event the investigation is being conducted by a non-federal investigating agency, the facility shall request that the investigating agency follow the applicable requirements of the MCADC policy and standards.
PROCEDURES FOR ADMINISTRATIVE INVESTIGATIONS
Upon conclusion of a criminal investigation where the allegation was substantiated, or in instances where no criminal investigation has been completed, an administrative investigation shall be conducted. Upon conclusion of a criminal investigation where the allegation was unsubstantiated, the facility shall review any available completed criminal investigation reports to determine whether an administrative investigation is necessary or appropriate. Substantiated allegation means an allegation that was investigated and determined to have occurred. Unsubstantiated allegation means an allegation that was investigated, and the investigation produced insufficient evidence to make a final determination as to whether or not the event occurred.
Administrative investigations shall be conducted after consultation with the appropriate investigative office within DHS and the assigned criminal investigative entity. The ICE Office of Professional Responsibility will typically be the appropriate investigative office within DHS, as well as the DHS OIG in cases where the DHS OIG is investigating.
The MCADC's administrative investigation includes:
- Preservation of direct and circumstantial evidence, including any available physical DNA evidence and any available electronic monitoring data. The facility will collect all direct and circumstantial evidence and will request the assistance from MSCO when physical DNA evidence requires collection. All surveillance will be gathered by MCADC and will have it available for during investigation process.
- Interviewing alleged victims, suspected perpetrators and witnesses. MCADC's PSA Coordinator/PREA Compliance Manager will be responsible to conduct an administrative investigation for all allegations of sexual assault or abuse. When initial evidence suggests that a legitimate case of sexual abuse or assault did indeed occur, the alleged perpetrator will not be interviewed during the administrative investigation. The PSACM will notify ICE, via the COR and will contact MCSO, as MCSO has law enforcement jurisdiction, they will conduct the criminal investigation.
- Reviewing prior complaints and reports of sexual abuse or assault involving the suspected perpetrator. The detention files for all detainees involved in an allegation of sexual abuse or assault will be reviewed.
- Assessment of the credibility of an alleged victim, suspect or witness, without regard to individual's status as detainee, staff or employee and without requiring any detainee who alleged sexual abuse or assault to submit to a polygraph.
- An effort to determine whether actions or failures to act at the MCADC contributed to the abuse. Upon conclusion of a criminal investigation where the allegation was unsubstantiated, the facility shall review any available completed criminal investigation reports to determine whether an administrative investigation is necessary or appropriate. The departure of the alleged abuser or victim from the employment or control of the facility or agency shall not provide a basis for terminating an investigation. The MCADC will conduct sexual incident reviews within 30 days of the conclusion of all allegations that are substantiated and unsubstantiated.
- Documentation of each investigation by written report, which will include a description of the physical and testimonial evidence, the reasoning behind credibility assessments, and investigative facts and findings. The PSA Coordinator/PREA Compliance Manager will be responsible for gathering all evidence and create an incident report file that will contain the aforementioned information. The MCADC will use no standard higher than a preponderance of the evidence in determining whether allegations of sexual abuse are substantiated.
- The MCADC will retain reports for as long as the alleged abuser is detained or employed by the facility, plus five years.
- Coordination and sequencing of administrative and criminal investigations to ensure that a criminal investigation is not compromised by an internal administrative investigation. When MCSO investigates an alleged sexual abuse and assault, the MCADC will cooperate with MCSO and will attempt to remain informed about the progress of the investigation. The MCADC will also cooperate with any administrative or criminal investigative efforts arising from the incident.
The MCADC will use no standard higher than a preponderance of the evidence in determining whether allegations of sexual abuse are substantiated.
Following an investigation conducted by the facility into a detainee's allegation of sexual abuse and assault, the facility shall notify ICE/ERO of the results of the investigation and any responsive actions taken so that the information can be reported to ICE/ERO headquarters and to the detainee.

Where an alleged victim of sexual abuse or assault that occurred elsewhere in ICE/ERO custody is subsequently transferred to the MCADC, the MCADC will also cooperate with any administrative or criminal investigative efforts arising from the incident.
