Questions to Consider about Reporting

  • Get to a safe place
  • Seek medical attention
    Go to a clinic or your primary care healthcare physician for medical treatment, or go to an emergency department of an area hospital for a forensic exam AND medical treatment.

    The forensic exam will assist with an investigation and potential prosecution. The evidence collected may be important to prove rape, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking or other sexual assault, and may assist in obtaining a protection order. There are designated hospitals that conduct sexual assault forensic exams and provide victim’s advocates from Metropolitan Organization of Counter Sexual Assault (MOCSA).

If you want to report the sexual misconduct, you should do so immediately following medical treatment/exam.

You can call the JCCC Police Department at 913-469-2500, or the police department in the city where the incident occurred. You can also go to a hospital emergency department specializing in forensic care if the sexual misconduct occurred within the last 5 days.

If you have questions about what to do or where to go, contact the JCCC Counseling Center at 913-469-3809 and/or the MOCSA crisis line at 913-642-0233, for more information.

If you do not want to report the incident to the police, you can still report the incident to the College

It is your decision whether or not you want to report the incident. Even if you do not want to file a police report, you can report this and other incidents/crimes anonymously through JCCC’s Keeping Our People Safe (KOPS–Watch).

Regardless of whether you report the incident, you are encouraged to seek medical attention.

Even if you are unsure whether you want to file a report about the incident with police and/or other offices, you may still seek medical treatment and obtain a forensic exam to preserve evidence in the event that you later decide to file a report
  • Do not shower
  • Do not eat, drink or brush your teeth
  • Wear or bring the clothes you wore at the time of the assault to the hospital in a paper bag
  • Try not to use the restroom until you are at the hospital
  • Save text messages, instant messages, social networking pages and other communications
    as evidence
JCCC prohibits retaliation against participants and witnesses who file a complaint or are participants in an investigation.

A restraining order is an order from a court that requires one party to do, or refrain from doing, certain acts. For example, it can prohibit another person from contacting you or being near you.

If you have a court order, you should inform and provide JCCC’s Police Department and/or Title IX coordinators with a copy of the order.

JCCC can help to ensure that the restraining or no-contact order is followed on campus and at JCCC events.

Even if you do not have a court order, JCCC may issue a no-contact order as part of its Title IX investigation and resolution procedures or take further protective action to minimize the interactions of you and the accused, such as rearranging college schedules or altering college employment arrangements
