The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office maintains a ZERO TOLERANCE in keeping with Public Law 108-79, the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) of 2003, which will enhance intervention, documentation, reporting, and investigative procedures. The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office has mandated a zero-tolerance towards all forms of sexual abuse and sexual harassment.  Such conduct is prohibited and will not be tolerated; to include inmate-on-inmate sexual abuse or harassment and employee-on-inmate sexual abuse or harassment.  It is Henderson County Sheriff’s Office’s policy to aggressively investigate all allegations, regardless of the source, and prosecute those who are involved in incidents of sexual abuse.  Criminal investigations will be referred to the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Department. Alleged victims of sexual abuse or harassment will be provided a supportive and protective environment. The credibility of an alleged victim, suspect, or witness is assessed on an individual basis and not determined by the person’s status as inmate or staff.
