Reporting Options

Sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking are crimes that are prohibited by State law.  Additionally, sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking are prohibited by the University of California Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment Policy.  When someone experiences one or more of these types of violence, they have a right to report it to the appropriate authority.  A victim advocate can help provide an overview of each reporting option, discuss rights that are afforded to the victim, and accompany the victim to any interview with law enforcement and/or University officials involved in the investigation and adjudication process.  For information about contacting a victim advocate with CARE, go to “Talk to an Advocate.”

 

Reporting to Law Enforcement

Sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking are considered crimes in California.  Many States have similar laws, although the specific language may vary. When someone experiences one of these crimes, or any other crime, they have a right to report it to the law enforcement agency in the jurisdiction were the crime happened.  For example, if the crime was committed on UC Davis property (Davis campus or Sacramento Campus) it would be reported to the UC Davis Police Department. Crimes that are committed in the city or county would be reported to the police department that patrols that city or county, i.e. Davis Police Department, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department, etc.

When someone chooses to report their sexual assault, abuse by an intimate partner, or the stalking behaviors they are experiencing, they have certain rights, including the right to have a victim advocate and/or support person of their choosing with them during any investigative interview.  For more information about victim rights when reporting to the police, go to “Know Your Rights.”

 

Reporting to the UC Davis Title IX Office

Sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking are prohibited by the University of California Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment Policy and the UC Davis Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment Policy.  When a member of the UC Davis community commits sexual violence or sexual harassment, this policy violation may be reported to the UC Davis Title IX Office, even if the harassment or violence occurred off campus.  When someone is harmed by a UC Davis community member, the victim can chose to report to Title IX, the police, or both.

When someone chooses to report to the UC Davis Title IX office, they can make a report online, in-person, or over the phone.  The UC Davis Harassment & Discrimination Assistance and Prevention Program (HDAPP) is the office designated by the UC Davis Title IX Officer to receive reports of sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, stalking, and discrimination.
