For Law Enforcement
The You Have the Right campaign is designed to educate sexual assault survivors and their friends and family members on Colorado’s reporting options, their rights as it relates to those reporting options, and the availability and cost of medical forensic exams in the state. It is essential for all professionals working with sexual assault survivors to understand Colorado’s reporting options as mandated by Colorado and federal law. A lack of awareness on what the law requires can cause confusion and even conflict or distrust between survivors, professionals, and the larger community. We hope you find this information useful for when you respond to adult sexual assault in your community.
