Police videos encourage sexual assault victims to come forward

Police hope a series of videos they have developed about reporting sexual assault will help victims to come forward. We’ll be regularly linking to this series throughout 2017.

The videos take a step-by-step look at what happens when a person reports a sexual assault to Police.

“It takes courage to come forward, to tell us what has happened,” says Detective Superintendent Tim Anderson, National Crime Manager.

These videos show what’s actually involved in the reporting process.

There are ten videos in total, six covering the reporting process and four that focus on consent, myths about sexual violence and some of the reasons why people don’t report sexual assaults to Police.
