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.

After I leave

 

I can change the locks on my doors and windows.

 

I can replace wooden doors with metal ones.

 

I can install security systems, including additional locks, window bars, poles to wedge against doors, etc.

 

I can buy rope ladders to be used for escape from second-floor windows.

 

I can install smoke detectors and put fire extinguishers on each floor in my home.

 

I will teach my children how to use the phone to make a collect call to me if they are concerned about their safety.

 

I can tell people who take care of my children which people have permission to pick them up and make sure they know how to recognize those people.

 

I will give the people who take care of my children copies of custody and protection orders, as well as emergency numbers.

At work and in public

 

I can inform my boss, the security supervisor and the employee assistance program, if available, about my situation. The number for the EAP office is                                                                                            .

 

I can ask                                                                               to screen my calls at work.

 

When leaving work, I can                                                                                                                                            .

 

If there’s trouble when traveling to and from work, I can                                                                                        .

 

I can change my patterns –

avoid stores, banks, doctor’s appointments, self-service laundries and                                                                                                , places where my partner might find me.

 

I can tell                                                                                and                                                                        that I am no longer with my partner and ask them to call the police if they believe my children and I are in danger.

With an order of protection

 

I will keep my protection order                                                                                                 .

(Always keep it on or near your person.)

 

I will give copies of my protection order to the local police or sheriff and departments in towns where I visit with friends and family.

 

I will give copies to my employer, my religious advisor, my closest friend, my children’s school and day-care center and                                                                                         .

 

If my partner destroys my order or if I lose it, I can get another copy from the court that issued it.

 

If my partner violates the order, I can call the police and report a violation, contact my attorney, call my domestic violence program advocate, and /or advise the court of the violation.

 

I can call a domestic violence program if I have questions about how to enforce an  order or if I have problems getting it enforced.
