Created by the IACP National Law Enforcement First-Line Supervisor Training on Violence Against Women, this checklist provides a general idea the kind of information a Sexual Assault Report requires when filed. While this is not a comprehensive list of what a report acquires when filed, it encourages collecting certain pieces of information to start an investigative process (if the victim asks for an investigation) but also helps keep track if the perpetrator is a repeat offender.

In 2007, the Major Cities Chiefs (MCC) approached the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) with a new and bold idea to address the rising violence on campus—increase the coordination between local and campus law enforcement to better protect students. With the safety and security of 15 million college and university students in America at stake, the need to act was clear.
MCC and BJA developed the Campus Security Guidelines in order to make a genuine difference in how law enforcement prevents, prepares, responds to and recovers from critical incidents on campus. The Guidelines are real operational policies, developed by the experts—local and campus law enforcement—that can be implemented across the nation.
