Some individuals want to file a report but do not want anyone to know that they have done so. If you are a victim of a crime and do not want to pursue action with the Dean of Students Office or with the police department, you may want to consider making a confidential report.
Oasis Sexual Assault and Trauma Services is able to provide this service to students, faculty, and staff. With your permission, we can file a report on the basic details of the incident without revealing your identity.
The purpose of a confidential report is to comply with your wish to keep the matter confidential, while taking steps to ensure the future safety for yourself and others. With such information, the University can keep an accurate record of the number of incidents involving students, determine where there is a pattern of crime with regards to a particular location, method, or assailant, and alert the campus community to potential danger. Reports filed in this matter are counted and disclosed in the annual crime statistics for the UA.
You have the option and the right to report the assault. There are different reasons people chose to report an assault and many survivors state that making a report was a valuable part of their healing. Although it is recommended to report the assault as soon as possible, an individual can make a report at any time after the assault has occurred.
