I agree wholeheartedly with Mr. Dunnings and Chief Dunlap. I volunteer with MSU’s Sexual Assault Program, and I know that the prosecutors and the police do a great job of working with us. Two weeks ago, a police officer took the extra step of calling the duty phone to get advice on what he could recommend to someone reporting an assault.
The quotations from the article give the mistaken impression that people reporting sexual assault will only be helped if they have substantial evidence already in place. I hope that all survivors still know that they can talk to the police or anyone at the Sexual Assault Program at any time.
For anyone interested, confidential and free help is available 24-7 at the Sexual Assault Crisis Intervention hotline, 517-372-6666. Our website is here
