This thesis explores sexual harassment and sexual coercion among prisoners and staff at Naval Consolidated Brig (NAVCONBRIG) Miramar. The data come from two surveys (one for staff and one for prisoners), which were administered in June and August 2006, respectively. This thesis begins with a review of relevant literature and discussion of reporting procedures, and an overview of the fear of reprisal associated with reporting incidents of sexual harassment coercion. We compare rates of sexual harassment and coercion experienced by the staff and prisoners, as well as reported perceptions of the percentage of prisoners who experience sexual harassment and coercion, as estimated by the staff and prisoners. Findings are compared with studies conducted in civilian prisons in 1996 and 2000. Write-in responses provide insight regarding what the staff and prisoners believe constitutes sexual harassment, ways to prevent sexual harassment at the facility, and actual incidents of sexual harassment and/or coercion experienced while in a prison. When compared with the civilian prisons, NAVCONBRIG Miramar prisoners experience lower rates of sexual harassment than all but one facility. The rate of sexual coercion reported by prisoners is approximately equal to what was reported by all military prison facilities. (U.S. DOJ, 2005b).
