ARC policy is to report allegations of sexual abuse to the appropriate local law enforcement agency, noted below, for criminal investigation:
ARC accepts third party reports of sexual abuse or sexual harassment at all residential facilities, and the ARC PREA Coordinator accepts third party reports of sexual abuse or sexual harassment at (608) 278-2300, or 2001 W. Beltline Hwy., #102, Madison WI 53713.
The annual report for 2020, issued January 26, 2021, found that ARC continues to be able to protect residents from sexual abuse and sexual harassment with the current staffing patterns and facility layout.
Across five residential facilities, ARC had no substantiated cases of sexual abuse or sexual harassment in 2021. By comparison to prior years, ARC substantiated between zero and two cases of sexual abuse in each year from 2015 through 2019 and between zero and two cases of sexual harassment in each year from 2015 through 2019.
ARC Milwaukee Women’s Program had a PREA audit in 2020, and the final report found that ARC Milwaukee Women’s Program is in compliance with applicable PREA standards.
A copy of the most recent facility PREA audit report is available in the office.
