The Force has opened the county's first Sexual Assult Referral Centre (SARC)

Published: 15th January 2010 11:53
This week the force has opened the county's first Sexual Assault Referral
Centre (SARC) in partnership with the NHS and Rape Crisis.



The centre, which will offer support and medical facilities for victims of
rape and sexual assault, was officially opened by MP Barbara Follett.

It's based at The Oasis, in Rivergate, Peterborough, and available 24/7 to
victims be calling 0845 089 6262.

Ensuring rape and sexual assault victims get the best possible service and
all of the support they need is an issue close to the force's heart.

The force set up the partnership project as part of its commitment to
ensure victims of rape and sexual assaults get the best service possible
and have all the support facilities possible to assist them.

Those who use the facilities are under no obligation to report their
incident to police but any forensic samples taken at the centre will be
kept on record in case they change their minds or to be used anonymously by
officers as intelligence on potential serial offenders.

Victims will also be given the opportunity to report their offence to a
specially trained officer (STO).

If you would like more information about the centre visit the force website
