If you’ve been a victim of crime, you’ll need to decide whether or not to tell the police. It's okay to feel unsure about this or worry about what will happen if you do.
There are positive reasons for reporting a crime. Remember that the police deal with all sorts of crime every day; they should treat everybody fairly and equally, and put your safety first. If you do decide to report a crime to the police then you’ll automatically be put in touch with Victim Support: https://www.victimsupport.org.uk/help-and-support/get-help/support-near-you/south-west/devon-and-cornwall
Alternatively you can discuss your concerns with the Living Support team, who can discuss the options to you. They can also arrange for you to meet the police on campus if you would like this.
