Sexual Assault Awareness Event


The City of Belton is taking the COVID-19 threat to the health and wellbeing of our
residents seriously,” said Lt. Davis. “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently
updated their advice on social distancing, from maintaining a 6-foot distance to maintaining
a range of 6- to10-foot distance. The closure of these city public access spaces is one of
our measures to follow this recommended best practice.”

With this being said we unfortunately will need to cancel our Sexual Assault Awareness Event that was scheduled for April 11th, 2020. We will try to do some online awareness post to try and still get the awareness out.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Belton Police Department Victim Service Unit at 816-348-4430.

I can leave


If I decide to leave, I will __________________________________________________________________________.

(Practice how to get out safely. What doors, windows, elevators, stairwells or fire escapes would you use?)


I can keep my purse and car keys ready and put them                                                                                so I can leave quickly.


I will leave money and an extra set of keys with                                                           so I can leave quickly.


I will keep copies of important documents or keys at                                                                                  .


I can get help


I can tell                                                                                 about the violence and request they call the police if they hear noises coming from my home.


I can teach my children how to use the telephone to contact the police and fire department. I will make sure they know our address.


If I have a programmable phone, I can program emergency numbers and teach my children how to use the auto dial.


I will use                                                                 as my code word with my children or my friends so they will call for help if needed.


If I have to leave my home, I will go to                                                                                                          .


If I cannot go to the above location, I can go to                                                                                          .


The domestic violence program hotline number is                                                        I can call it if I need shelter.

If it’s not safe to talk openly, I will use                                                                            as the code word or signal to my children that we are going to go, or to my family or friends that we are coming.


I can use my judgement


When I expect my partner and I are going to argue, I will try to move to a space that is lowest risk, such as                                                                                 . (Try to avoid arguments in the bathroom, garage, kitchen, near weapons or in rooms without an outside exit.)


I will use my judgment and intuition. If the situation is serious, I can give my partner what he wants to try to calm him down. I have to protect myself until I/we are out of danger.


I also can teach age-appropriate strategies to my children.
