File a Report

If you have been sexually assaulted or raped, or if think you have been but are not sure, it’s your decision whether you file a report or not. If there is a chance you’ll want to report the incident, either now or in the near future, evidence should be collected within 96 hours of the incident. Evidence can be collected at a local emergency room: UHS Binghamton General Hospital or Lourdes Hospital. Sexual Assault Forensics Examiner (SAFE) nurses conduct a SAFE examination and can serve as an expert witness should you decide to make a formal report.

If you choose to report the sexual assault, there are various options available to you. Some of these options require you to provide your name and contact information; in some cases this information can be kept confidential if you request it.
