West Midlands Police treats all instances of rape and sexual assault very seriously.
Sexual assault and sexual abuse are serious crimes. It is important that you report your assault to us so that we can find who is responsible for attacking you and help prevent someone else from being attacked. If you know the person we want to ensure they are held responsible for their actions.
If you or someone you know has been raped, sexually assaulted or sexually abused, then you will find the information in this section very helpful. It explains what the police and others will do to help you.
Specially trained officers (STO) will deal with all cases in a discreet and professional manner. We take every report of rape and sexual assault seriously, and will investigate each instance thoroughly.
Everybody who reports a sexual assault to the police will be taken to a Rowan Centre, where they will be able to talk to the police in a comfortable environment, receive medical treatment, support from Independent Sexual Violence Advisors, and will be offered advice around the support available.
If you or anybody you know has been raped or sexually assaulted, please contact West Midlands Police on 101 to receive help and support. In an emergency always contact 999.
