If you are in an emergency situation, dial 911 immediately for law enforcement and medical assistance.

If you, or someone you know has experienced sexual violence, domestic violence, or stalking there are several options to choose from for assistance. This quick reference guide provides the steps you can take if you or someone you know needs assistance. Trauma affects everyone differently and the resources a person may need in the first few days following an incident of violence may be different than the resources a person may need following an incident that occurred several weeks, months, or years ago. The reporting options below will help facilitate the necessary assistance for anyone affected by violence, including victims, witnesses, offenders, friends or family. 

Download the quick reference guide for information on reporting options. A list of comprehensive resources available to you can be found on the Resources and File a Report sections of this website.
