How to Report Sexual Assault
To Report a Sexual Assault call:
Grand Valley Police Department: (616) 331-3255
Grand Valley State University Title IX: (616) 331-9530
This video highlights what the process will look like for a victim/survivor of interpersonal violence when choosing whether to report to law enforcement.
Please be aware that Grand Valley State University has a policy that prohibits sexual or gender-based harassment and violence, stalking, and intimate partner violence. The Title IX Coordinator in the Division of Inclusion and Equity is responsible for enforcement of the University’s policy.
Sharing an experience of sexual and/or interpersonal violence can be difficult for many individuals. Mindful of this, Grand Valley Police Department has a soft interview room. This is a room in which a victim/survivor may file a police report in a space that is designed to be trauma informed and more comfortable than a traditional interview room. Officers are also able to take police reports in other locations where the victim/survivor may feel comfortable, such as the Victim Advocate’s office.
