Our Promises To Victims

Personal crimes, including assaults, sexual assaults, and hate crimes, are a very serious concern of the Southeastern Louisiana University Police.

Such offenses can be emotionally devastating to a victim, and they destroy the fabric of our community. We strongly encourage all victims of crime to file a police report, and we make the following guarantees to anyone who does.


Because the needs of a victim are our primary concern

  • We will meet with you privately, at a place of your choice, to take a report.

  • We will go with you to meet with another police agency if this is out of our jurisdiction.

  • We will not prejudge you or blame you for what occurred.

  • We will treat you professionally, with courtesy, sensitivity, dignity, and respect.

  • We will do our best to make you feel comfortable while making your report.

  • We will assist you and go with you in arranging for any hospital treatment or other medical needs.

  • We will assist you in obtaining counseling, advising, and other available resources both on and off campus.

  • We will do everything we can to protect your safety after making a report.

  • We will thoroughly investigate your case and, if a perpetrator is identified, prosecute it criminally, unless you decide against it.

  • We will keep you informed of the progress of the investigation and/or prosecution.

  • We will always be available to answer questions and explain the criminal justice system and processes involved.

  • We will consider your case seriously regardless of your gender identity or the suspect's.
