The Division of Juvenile Services has implemented a written policy mandating zero tolerance toward all forms of sexual abuse and sexual harassment and outlining the agency's approach to preventing, detecting, and responding to such conduct. The DOCR PREA Policy is available here (DOCR Policy 3C-4)
Family, clergy or other persons who wish to make a report regarding sexual abuse or sexual harassment which is alleged to have occurred while a youth was placed at the North Dakota Youth Correctional Center should contact:
Tony Kozojed, Director of Community Operations
Address: 701 16th Avenue SW, Mandan, ND 58554
PREA requires incidents of sexual abuse and sexual harassment at the North Dakota Youth Correctional Center to be recorded in one of three categories: 1) Substantiated; 2) Unsubstantiated; or 3) Unfounded. 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. Unfounded Allegation means an allegation that was investigated and determined not to have occurred.
Below is a compilation of the reported incidents at the North Dakota Youth Correctional Center (NDYCC) that meet PREA definitions since 2005, which is when the data began to be collected in this format.
