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.

So what is Sexual Violence?

Sexual violence is any sexual contact without consent. This includes: fondling, molestation, oral sex, incest, or rape. There are also forms of sexual violence that don't involve touch: introduction to pornography, lewd telephone calls, voyeurism, or exhibitionism.

  • Incest is any sexual contact between relatives.

  • Molestation is sexual acts done to children younger than 18. It can include: touching and exposure of private parts, taking pornographic pictures, sexual acts with the molester or other children, but does not result in rape. It may occur just once or repeatedly.

  • Rape is penetration of the vagina or penis by a body part or object without the victim's consent.

  • Exhibitionism is publicly displaying one's genitals. And voyeurism is sexual pleasure from watching others when they are naked or engaged in sexual activity.

Often the terms sexual violence and sexual assault are used interchangeably.
