POLICE/LEGAL RESOURCES

EMERGENCY CONTACT
In an emergency, DIAL 9-1-1
or University Police at (619) 594-1991.
SDSU POLICE
When SDSU Police receives a report of an on-campus assault, medical assistance and safety are their top priorities. SDSU Police will take a report, process the crime scene and obtain any evidence. Survivors are interviewed, and resources such as Sexual Assault Response Team of San Diego County and referral to the University’s Center for Student Rights and Responsibilities, are provided.
SAN DIEGO POLICE DEPARTMENT
A detective will then take the case and investigate it further, walking the survivor through the process. There are also additional police and legal services available through the San Diego Police Department’s Sex Crimes Unit and a Domestic Violence Unit.
MEDICAL RESOURCES

Survivors are encouraged to visit SDSU's Student Health Services at Calpulli Center if they have experienced an assault. Medical providers will ensure the student receives appropriate medical care and will alert the police to the incident. Dependent on the nature of the assault and the timeliness of seeking care, the survivor may receive prophylactic treatment for STIs or pregnancy. Student Health Services will connect students with other resources on and off campus whenever necessary.

SDSU faculty and staff can be a tremendous form of support and can connect you with other resources on campus. When a faculty or staff member receives information about an incident of sexual violence, they are required to report the incident to the SDSU Title IX Office.
