Go to the Shannon Medical Center Emergency Room at 120 E. Harris. Shannon personnel can help you with a SAFE (Sexual Assault Forensic Exam) and information related to victim’s services. A SAFE is conducted by a sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE) who is trained in the collection of evidence and can check for both injuries and evidence. (You may receive a SAFE even if you do not wish to report the incident to the police at this time. However, a police officer will be present to pick up and preserve evidence collected during the exam.)
A note on preserving evidence:
Preserve any physical evidence of violence, such as sheets, towels, clothing, etc. Because evidence of an assault can deteriorate quickly, you may want to seek a medical exam as soon as possible.
- Do not disturb the scene of the crime.
- Inform the nurse and/or the police of all details of the attack (no matter how intimate).
- Save texts, emails, photos, etc.
