Missouri Safety Building Blocks 

The Missouri Safety Building Blocks were developed by the Missouri DYS Senior Leadership Team in 2009 to articulate best practices that create physical and emotional safety in youth correctional programs in a way that is not coercive or re-traumatizing.  The approach was included in testimony by Missouri DYS officials to the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) Panel in June 2010 based on the low rates of sexual victimization in Missouri programs.
