Recently, much of the nation’s attention has been focused on sexual assault, sexual harassment, reporting laws, and the impact sexual violence has on our society.
The Montgomery County Commission for Women encourages victims and survivors of sexual assault, who are ready, to reach out for assistance. Your fear is normal, your assault was not.
Montgomery County has excellent resources to help victims, including the Victim Assistance and Sexual Assault Program. The Special Victims Investigations Division of the Montgomery County Police Department has a Sexual Assault Unit, which is highly trained, victim-centered, and also ready to assist as needed.
The Victim Assistance and Sexual Assault Program (VASAP) assists victims of crimes such as rape/sexual assault and provides crisis and ongoing counseling, information and referral, advocacy and support and compensation for victims of crimes committed in Montgomery County or crime victims who live in Montgomery County.
