What are your reporting options?

Restricted Reporting allows victims of intimate partner violence to receive support and counseling services without a law enforcement investigation or chain of command involvement. Restricted Reporting protects the victim's identity and except in the rare instances, assures absolute confidentiality. RESTRICTED REPORTING IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR CASES OF CHILD ABUSE AND NEGLECT.

Unrestricted Reporting allows victims of intimate partner violence to receive support, medical attention, and counseling with a law enforcement investigation and the support of the chain of command. Unrestricted Reporting offers protection of the victim from the alleged abuser. In order to make a fully informed choice, Restricted Reporting versus Unrestricted Reporting, be sure to speak to a Victim Advocate (VA).

VA's can be reached 24 hours a day, seven days a week by calling 760.362.9837.
