Sexual Violence Awareness Week: Red Flag Event in Bournemouth
The PCC supports a campaign and a series of events held in Bournemouth to raise awareness about how sexual abuse and violence is not OK.
Martyn Underhill, Police and Crime Commissioner for Dorset, said: “Statistics showing that 80 per cent of sexual assaults were not reported to the police are deeply troubling, and show we sadly still have a very long way to go when it comes to talking openly about these offences.
“Nobody should ever feel like they have to tolerate any form of sexual assault or be afraid to come forward and report it. I would urge anyone who may be suffering in silence or who is concerned about a friend to come to this event and find out more about the support that is available.”
