The UMass Lowell Police Department strongly advocates that a person subjected to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence or stalking report the incident in a timely manner. Time is a critical factor. Filing a police report will not obligate you to prosecute, nor will it subject you to scrutiny or judgmental opinions from officers. Filing a police report will:
- Ensure that a person subjected to sexual assault receives the necessary medical treatment and tests, at no expense to the person;
- Provide the opportunity for collection of evidence helpful in prosecution, which cannot be obtained later (ideally a person subjected to sexual assault should not wash, douche, use the toilet, or change clothing prior to a medical / legal exam)
- Ensure the person subjected to sexual assault has access to free confidential counseling from counselors specifically trained in the area of sexual assault crisis intervention.
