Reporting Sexual Misconduct and Sexual Assault

CBU encourages those who have experienced any form of sex discrimination and/or sexual misconduct to report the incident promptly, to seek all available assistance, and to pursue university conduct charges and criminal prosecution of the offender. CBU takes complaints very seriously and will work with victims to ensure their safety and to remedy the situation. In instances of sexual assault, the reporting disclosure of the act of violence itself to law enforcement is mandated. By law, a victim's identity may not be disclosed to local law enforcement unless the victim consents to being identified after being informed of his or her right to have identifying information withheld. If a victim does not consent to disclosing his or her identity, the alleged perpetrator's identity may not be disclosed either. Regardless as to whether a victim chooses to report a crime, accommodations and/or protective measures will be provided if the victim requests them and if they are reasonably available.

File a Criminal Complaint

Individuals who believe they have either witnessed or been subjected to sexual misconduct are encouraged to file a complaint with the Riverside Police Department by calling (951) 787-7911 or in person at any full-service police facility in the City of Riverside. The Riverside Police Department office nearest to the main campus is located at 10540 Magnolia Avenue, Riverside, CA 92505. Victims are not required to file a crime report but are encouraged to do so and will be assisted by campus authorities in notifying law enforcement if the victim chooses.
