Sexual Assault

Upcoming Events 

Sexual Assault Awareness Event

Cancelation

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.

Create a Distraction

Interrupt by: diverting the conversation, start a group activity, make your presence known.

Ask Directly

Speak to the person who may be in trouble. Do you need me to stay with you? Do you need any help?

Refer to an Authority

Go get security, a teacher, an employee, or anyone in authority and alert them to the situation. If necessary call 911.

Enlist Others

You don't have to intervene alone. There is strength in numbers. Or have a friend of the individual in distress intervene instead.

How do I respond to a friend who has been sexually assaulted?

First start by believing them!

Listen. Respond without judging.

Offer to be there if they go for a medical exam.

Encourage them to talk to a professional counselor.

Help them set goals for self-care.

Be patient and allow them time to grieve.

Watch for changes in behavior that could be harmful.

Help them search for resources.
