Important information for survivors of sexual assault
There’s no time limit to report a sexual assault to police. Even if you were assaulted years ago, you can still report it to police. Many survivors do not report right away, and choose to do so later in their lives. Reporting a sexual assault can help you seek justice and start the healing process.
If you wish to report a sexual assault, you can contact your local police to make a report. If you chose not to report sexual assault to the police directly, you can report the crime through a third party. Third party reporting is when someone else reports the crime to police. It allows survivors who do not want to report the crime directly to ensure police receive a report about the crime.
