What to Do If You Have Been Sexually Assaulted

  • Get to a safe place.
  • Call a friend or family member to be with you.
  • It is advisable to report a sexual assault, even an unsuccessful attempt. The information you provide may prevent another person from being assaulted. When you report a sexual assault, any information you can remember about the attack will be helpful – the assaulter's physical characteristics, voice, clothes, car or even an unusual smell.
  • If you have been sexually assaulted, you should call the police as soon as possible; do not bathe or change your clothes. Semen, hair and material under fingernails or on your clothing all may be useful in identifying and prosecuting the assaulter. If the assault occurred on campus, call the LAPC Sheriff's Department at (818) 719-6450.
  • It is very helpful to contact a rape treatment center, where qualified staff members may assist you in dealing with your trauma. If you are unable to make the contact yourself, have a friend, family member or police make the call.
  • Finally, it is important to remember that many individuals will mistakenly blame themselves for the assault. However, being sexually assaulted is not a crime – the crime has been committed by the person who assaulted you.

Sexual Assault

LAPC is committed to providing a safe environment for its students, faculty, and staff. The Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) Board of Trustees condemns any act of sexual assault committed on any of its facilities. In the event of sexual assault committed on grounds or in facilities maintained and/or used by the District, any victim of sexual assault who is one of the District students, faculty, staff, or visitors shall promptly receive appropriate treatment and full and accurate information. Individuals who commit sexual assault while on properties within the control of the District shall be subject to appropriate criminal prosecution and/or District disciplinary procedures. Confidentiality is fundamental to all aspects of cases dealing with sexual assault. The names of sexual assault victims shall not be revealed be persons responsible for implementing and enforcing the provisions of this Chapter, except with the consent of the victim. Victims of sexual assault may obtain a list of referrals to community agencies from the campus police office.

Other Remedies

Complainants not satisfied with the disposition of their discrimination or sexual harassment complaint on the campus may contact the United States Department of Education Office of Civil Rights, the Americans' Civil Liberties Union, or file a private lawsuit.

Child Abuse Reporting

Penal Code section 11166 et seq. requires all child care custodians, including administrators, teachers and counselors to report cases of suspected child abuse. Failure to report suspected child abuse is a misdemeanor, however, no child care custodian who reports a known or suspected instance of child abuse shall be civilly or criminally liable for any report required or authorized by the Penal Code. Please refer to Child Abuse Neglect and Reporting Act for a full description of reporting requirements.
