Q Should police departments develop a reporting form specifically for sexual assault?
A Should police departments develop a reporting form specifically for sexual assault?

Most police departments use standard reporting forms for all crimes, therefore they are not likely to develop a form for just one crime. This is critical to the automated justice information systems developed for crime analysis. Therefore, the best most agencies will do is develop a supplemental like the one developed by the International Association of Chiefs of Police. We do not know of any agency that has developed a report form just for sex crimes, and there is no way to know how many are using a supplemental form such as the IACP’s. It is not an issue commonly raised in training presentations.
