Annual Report Assessing CBP Efforts to Prevent, Detect, and Respond to Sexual Abuse in Holding Facilities (FY 2016)

As part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Standards to Prevent, Detect, and Respond to Sexual Abuse and Assault in Confinement Facilities (the “DHS Standards”), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) collects and reviews data on all allegations of sexual abuse and assault in holding facilities to facilitate the detection of possible patterns and help prevent future incidents in holding facilities. The DHS Standards also require the preparation of an annual report outlining the agency’s findings and corrective actions.

This report documents the agency’s progress in preventing, detecting, and responding to sexual abuse and assault in CBP holding facilities during FY 2016. In accordance with the DHS Standards, this report also provides a comparison of the current year’s data with those from prior years.
