University Police Guarantee

The Northwestern University Police Department recognizes sexual assault as a serious crime and encourages victims to report incidents. Our guarantee for sexual assault victims reflects our concern for survivors and emphasizes sensitivity, privacy (to the extent possible), and the need for trust and confidence. Our primary concern is for the victim. The investigation and the prosecution, or discipline, of the suspect may prevent future assaults. For these reasons, Northwestern University Police Department has adopted this guarantee for sexual assault victims.

We will not release your name to the media and will request the media to respect your privacy.
