UWPD SEXUAL ASSAULT RESPONSE COMMITMENT Everyone has the right to control their own sexuality.
(CDC National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey 2010) Although unwanted sexual contact is against the law, most rapes are not reported to law enforcement.
Holding sex offenders accountable for their criminal acts can give victims a sense of justice and helps protect the community by lowering the chances of sex offenders re-offending.
You can meet to discuss resources, options and to develop with a plan. Sexual assault and sexual harassment is a serious concern on college campuses.
UWPD has a full time Victim Advocate available to support victims, their families, and witnesses through the process of physical, emotional and financial recovery.
According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, across the country there were 135 officer deaths on duty in 2016, the last year for which complete data is available.
