Reporting Sexual Assault to the Police in Hawaii
Group: Crime Prevention and Justice Assistance Division, University of Hawaii
Sexual assault is one of the most under-reported serious crimes. What factors affect sexual assault victims’ decision to report or not report these crimes to the police? Can this information be used to encourage reporting or to design effective interventions by treatment centers and community education projects? What are the implications for community policing and other criminal justice initiatives? A cooperative study by the Social Science Research Institute and the School of Social Work at the University of Hawaii and the Crime Prevention & Justice Assistance Division of the Department of the Attorney General seeks to answer these questions.
