Get Started

In this module, we will provide information for officers and investigators who make the difficult decisions every day regarding how to record a report of a sexual assault.  As part of this decision, the primary determination to be made is whether the sexual assault will be recorded with an official crime report or an informational report, although the specific language and procedures for each will vary by agency.  As we will discuss in this module, the implications of this decision are very important, because they determine whether or not it will need to be officially cleared or closed once all of the investigative leads are exhausted. 

Estimated time for completion:  12 hours
