NEW! We need your help! York-Poquoson Victim/Witness Assistance Program is asking victims of sexual assault in 2014 or in early 2015 to complete a brief, completely anonymous survey to help us improve our response to victims of sexual assault. Whether or not the crime was reported to authorities, your input matters! The survey asks about victims' experience with hospital staff, law enforcement, and community victim advocates. You can find the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/KF29BG7; or by clicking on the button below.
For the purposes of this survey, sexual assault is defined as intentional sexual contact or behavior that occurs without the explicit consent of the victim.
Please pass this along to family and friends. Thank you for your help with this very important survey.
