Sexual Assault Investigations

The Washington State University Police Department (WSUPD) is committed to investigating all reports of sexual assault, and our investigators recognize the need for a victim-centered and trauma informed response.  Each and every incident is taken seriously, and we acknowledge that one of our jobs as law enforcement officers is to gather evidence, conduct criminal investigations, and hold offenders accountable for their crimes.

WSUPD has adopted best practice law enforcement strategies for investigating sexual assaults and has a team of officers trained in the investigation of sexual assaults and conducting interviews.  These specially trained officers are available anytime to meet with you and discuss the investigatory options offered by our department.  Additionally, the officers can help you determine what direction is most appropriate for your situation and are available to assist with obtaining whatever resources are necessary to ensure your advocacy, health, and safety needs.

Our officers are always available to speak with you if there are questions about the reporting or the investigative process. There is no requirement to provide any identifying information to get answers, and we will help you get in touch with a sexual assault advocate and obtain medical care even if you never intend to file a police report.
