Victims of sexual assault range in age from toddlers to senior citizens. One issue they all share is the enormous short and long-term impact this criminal act has on their lives.

Police officers working in our Sexual Assault / Child Abuse Unit have received the latest training to help victims deal with the emotional pain and suffering caused by sexual offenders.

Sexual Assault / Child Abuse Unit shall be responsible for the investigation of the following incidents:
1. Sexual assaults where the victim is, or was under eighteen years of age at the time of the offence.
2. Serious sexual assaults where the suspect is not known.
3. Sexual assaults of a serial nature.
4. Allegations of physical abuse where the victim is currently under 16 years of age and the suspect is in a position of trust or authority with them, or the suspect is a caregiver.
5. Child pornography investigations (forensic investigative support provided by the Electronic Crimes Unit).
6. Criminal harassment in which the offender is not known to the victim.
7. Human trafficking where the victim is, or was under eighteen years of age at the time of the offence

The members of the Sexual Assault/Child Abuse Unit maintain a positive working relationship with our community agencies providing information and support to victims of sexual assault and child abuse.
