Podcast Help For Sexual Assault Victims
8:01am 21st July 2012
Thames Valley Police has launched its first ever Podcast. The Podcasts, which the police hope will be posted on a regular basis, will bring residents crime prevention advice and policing news from the front line in what TVP say will be an engaging and informative method of communication.
The first Podcast addresses some issues around sexual assaults. Although the number of sexual assaults has decreased across the whole force by 9% since last year according to Home Office figures.
As well as driving the number of sexual assaults down, Thames Valley Police want to make people aware of the importance of reporting sexual assaults early. Not only will vital evidence be taken which could ensure a prosecution but victims will start receiving help and support for what can be an emotional and frightening experience.
Get your questions answered.
- What happens when you report a sexual assault?
- What can you do to protect yourself from this type of crime?
- What if you don’t want to report sexual assaults to the police?
- How far is too far?
Listen to the TVP Podcast interview with Det Supt Paul Hayles from CID and Specially Trained Officer, Det Sgt Mike Wallen to get answers to these questions and more.
