Making a Criminal Complaint to Law Enforcement

 

Making a Criminal Complaint to Law Enforcement 

You have the right to report, and the right to not report, a sexual assault that you have suffered to law enforcement.

To make a direct report to local law enforcement without assistance from the College, individuals should contact 911 or Lancaster County Wide Communications at 717-367-1835. The dispatcher will ask for preliminary information like the name of the reporting person, phone number, address, and whether immediate assistance is needed. Lancaster County Wide Communications will then contact the appropriate local law enforcement agency, most likely the Elizabethtown Borough Police Department. Some areas of Elizabethtown are under the jurisdiction of Northwest Regional Police Department. Crimes that occur within the Northwest Regional jurisdiction will be referred to that office. Once the local law enforcement agency is contacted by the Lancaster County Wide Communications, a police officer will contact the reporting person to gather more information and provide resources, like obtaining a Protection from Abuse order or locations for a sexual assault forensic exam (SAFE). Once local law enforcement has gathered information they may refer the reporting person to a police detective to conduct a more thorough investigation. Local law enforcement officials are willing to meet with individuals making a report in a location that is comfortable, either on-campus or at the local police department office.

The College can assist you in making a report to local law enforcement. If you would like help making contact with local law enforcement and scheduling a meeting time with a Police Officer or Police Detective, please contact one of the individuals listed below
