University Police/Local Police

UMass Lowell Police: The UMass Lowell Police Department strongly advocates that a victim of sexual assault report the incident in a timely manner. Time is a critical factor for evidence collection and preservation. An assault should be reported directly to UMass Lowell Police Department; filing a police report will not obligate the victim to prosecute, nor will it subject the victim to scrutiny or judgmental opinions from officers.

Filing a police report will:

  • Ensure that a victim of sexual assault receives the necessary medical treatment and tests, at no expense to the victim;
  • Provide the opportunity for collection of evidence helpful in prosecution, which cannot be obtained later (ideally a victim of sexual assault should not wash, douche, use the toilet, or change clothing prior to a medical/legal exam)
  • Ensure the victim has access to free confidential counseling from counselors specifically trained in the area of sexual assault crisis intervention.

Lowell Police can be contacted at this number: 978-937-3200.
