Petitioning Milwaukee-area police

The option for sexual assault victim advocates when questioning a victim

64
Supporters

1. We want a plan of action on how Milwaukee Police Department will create victim-centered response that will include an accompanying advocate for both Sensitive Crimes and District investigations of sexual assault.
2. We want up-to-date figures released on the number of sexual assault cases in Milwaukee and nearby areas.

Crimes of sexual assault are on the rise. Over 60% of sexual assault victims don’t report. Many who do not report are afraid of being re-victimized, as they are often questioned as suspects, not treated as victims. We need to change how the Milwaukee Police Department addresses sexual assault.
