Want Help From the Police?
If you are in danger, call 9-1-1.
The criminal justice system and this University's efforts to investigate and respond to Title IX concerns are separate processes with separate procedures. Complaints/reports must be made under both procedures if you, as a Complainant, wish for both criminal and administrative resolution options be pursued. As a Complainant, you may also request a protection order from a court under Kansas state law. K-State Police will enforce such orders on campus.
If you as a Complainant or other person believe that criminal conduct has occurred, then you are encouraged to make a criminal complaint to the police. If you, as a Complainant, go to The Center for Advocacy, Response and Education at Kansas State University for support, a CARE staff members may encourage the you to file a complaint with the police and will provide assistance in doing so if asked. If discussed, the CARE staff member will also advise you that you may decline to notify the police.
You have the right to report what happened to you to the police.
You should contact the police department that is responsible for the specific location where the assault or other criminal act occurred. If you are not sure which police department to contact, the Kansas State University Police Department is happy to speak with you to assist in determining which is the most appropriate department to contact.
