Community Legal Authorities

We encourage you to contact the police.

Sexual assault is a criminal offence. Individuals who experience sexual assault have the option of making a report to the police. As always, we are available to support you in making this decision. We can assist and support you in filing a report with the police. If you are not interested in making a report at this time, it is suggested you write down as many details of the incident as you can and keep any personal effects that may be relevant so that you can refer to this should you decide to make a report in the future.
