We emphasize victim assistance in all responses to reports of crime. The ULPD provides assistance to students, faculty and staff concerning all incidents of criminal activity, investigation and prosecution including victim's and witness rights and options.

Regardless of whether a victim elects to pursue a criminal complaint or whether the offense is alleged to have occurred on or off-campus, the university will assist victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.

ULPD will call the University of Louisville PEACC Center (PEACC = Prevention, Education and Advocacy on Campus and in the Community) if a student asks for assistance. The PEACC Center offers violence prevention programming as well as advocacy support services to the general University community.
