Information on making a report to the police

The New South Wales Police Force (NSWPF) provides victims of sexual assault two options in making a report. The first and preferred option is to contact the nearest Police Station and make a formal complaint. The second option is to complete the Sexual Assault Reporting Options (SARO) questionnaire. By reporting the assault to police vital information can be obtained about this type of crime. The information gathered can be used to prosecute an offender and to develop strategies to reduce this crime type.
