Reporting Options

There are two different ways to report a sexual assult, dating violence or stalking.

Restricted

Restricted reporting allows a sexual assault victim to confidentially disclose details of his/her assault to specifically identified individuals and receive medical care, victim advocacy and counseling, without triggering the official investigative process.

Restricted reporting is intended to give victims additional time and increase control over the release and management of their personal information, and to empower them to seek relevant information and support to make more informed decisions about whether to participate in the criminal and administrative investigation.

Midshipmen who are sexually assaulted and desire restricted reporting should report the assault to the Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC), Victim Advocate (VA), Chaplain or a healthcare provider.

Unrestricted

A midshipman who is sexually assaulted and desires medical treatment, counseling and an official investigation of his/her allegation should report the incident to the SARC or VA on duty or use current reporting channels, e.g. chain of command, law enforcement.

Anonymous Reporting

Clicking here is one way that any member of the United States Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA) community can share concerns regarding sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking from an on-campus network computer. This form is NOT for reporting academic concerns.

If you prefer to make a report to a confidential resource on-campus, please, call: 516-462-3207.

If you have an immediate concern about the health or safety of a USMMA student or employee, please contact the Department of Public Safety at 516-726-5911.
