A. Online reports

Online reports may be submitted, anonymously if so desired, at www.pointpark.edu/incidentreport.

B. Emergency Contact Information

In the event of a sexual assault or relationship violence, visiting a hospital emergency room will ensure treatment is provided for possible injuries, pregnancy, or sexually transmitted disease. Additionally, a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) can obtain forensic evidence of an assault up to ten days after the incident. This can be important if legal options are pursued later, including obtaining a protection order. There is a limited window of time (up to 10 days) following an incident of sexual assault to preserve physical and other forms of evidence. Taking the step to gather evidence immediately does not commit an individual to any course of action. The decision to seek medical attention and to gather any evidence will remain confidential and will preserve the full range of options to seek resolution through the University’s complaint processes and/or criminal action. Additionally, in Pennsylvania, an individual can submit to a medical exam anonymously.

University staff can assist in obtaining medical or mental health care, and notifying law enforcement in the proper jurisdiction if the complainant desires. Also, Pittsburgh Action Against Rape will be notified of all reported assaults so that trained crisis counselors can accompany a victim to the hospital 24 hours a day, if the complainant desires The University will work with the complainant and law enforcement to implement any needed protective measures including No Contact Orders issued by the University and/or lawful orders issued by criminal, civil, or tribal court.

Complainants have the right to decline notification to law enforcement. This choice does not remove availability of any medical treatment and assistance from the University.
