Reporting for Victims
Reporting crimes can be difficult, but just knowing that the incident occurred can aid the police in developing preventive strategies. The CU-Boulder Office of Victim Assistance, MESA, and the Boulder County Safehouse can also facilitate official reporting through law enforcement if desired, as well as answer any questions or concerns you might have about reporting options.
Information about reporting options for victims is provided by the Office of Victim Assistance.

Description: The Office of Victim Assistance (OVA) provides free confidential response services for students, faculty, staff and their significant others who experience traumatic, disturbing or disruptive life events. We do this by providing information, support and short-term counseling. OVA is not a part of the police department. The office responds to situations involving physical assault and hazing, bias motivated incidents, death, discrimination and harassment including sexual harassment, intimate partner violence, serious accidents, sexual assault and stalking, as well as other potentially traumatic situations. If you are a CU student, or if you would like to discuss concerns about a CU student that cannot wait until business hours, call the main number (303-492-8855) and press "2" to speak to a mental health professional.
