Sexual assault awareness a focus for Sturgeon Bay Police

This month the Sturgeon Bay Police Department is using their squad cars to draw attention to sexual assault. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and the SBPD will be sporting teal ribbons on their squad cars which signifies the relationship between the Sexual Assault Center and law enforcement for survivors. Sexual assault is an underreported crime, and SBPD Officer and Sexual Assault Investigator, Michelle Snover wants victims to know that there are people to talk to about their situation. 

 

 

Snover notes that there are laws to assist victims in keeping anonymity. Snover also encourages victims or third parties to reach out to her, even if they don’t feel ready to report a case. 

 

 

According to Rainn.org statistics, an American is sexually assaulted once every seventy-three seconds.
