Reporting to the Police

Some forms of sexual or gender-based misconduct, such as sexual assault, domestic violence, and stalking are crimes. You have the right to file a police report and have your case investigated. The DPSS Special Victims Unit is available to assist and provide options whether you choose to participate in a criminal process or not. The U-M Police Department is committed to providing a trauma-informed response, and their officers are specially trained to work with individuals reporting interpersonal violence. They can also assist you with the following:

  • Filing a police report
  • Seeking medical attention
  • Seeking support, advocacy and counseling services
  • Discussing legal options, including seeking personal protection orders from a court
  • Accommodations for housing, academics, transportation and work

Please note: All reports of sexual and gender-based misconduct made to U-M Police are also reported to the university’s Office for Institutional Equity regardless of whether you choose to pursue criminal charges or not.
