Sexual assault investigations are very complex. We recognize that reporting a sexual assault to anyone, let alone police, can be difficult. We are committed to respecting a victim’s rights, and as part of our victim-centered, trauma-informed approach to sexualized violence, we work closely with victims to ensure they’re willing to proceed with a police investigation, which includes giving a statement about the incident and providing a description of the suspect if possible. Sexual assault investigators have been taking these measures since first speaking with the victim.
