What Victims of Sexual Assault
Can Expect From The University
of Florida Police Department
It is the policy of the University of Florida Police De
apartment to ensure that sexual assault victims are afforded
sensitivity and maximum humane consideration.
All officers, regardless of duty assignment, receive
specialized training in the investigation of sex offenses.
Topics discussed in this training are Florida law, university
philosophy and policy, officer sensitivity to the needs and
feelings of the victim, support resources, and methods of
Officers will ensure that a victim advocate is available
throughout the process to address a victim's needs
and concerns as well as those of significant others.
Officers will treat a victim with courtesy, sensitivity,
dignity, and understanding.
Officers will act thoughtfully without prejudging or
blaming a victim.
A victim's request to speak to an officer of the same
gender will be accommodated.
SOfficers will meet privately with a victim in a location
of the victim's choice.
Officers will make arrangements for medical treatment
with respect for a victim's choice of medical facility.
Officers will inform a victim of services available both
on and off campus.
Officerswill answer victim's questions at anytime and
will explain the criminal justice system and process.

and consistently, and will keep a victim informed on
the progress of the case.
* A victim's name and identifying information
will be withheld from the public and the
press, in accordance with the Florida Public
What You Can Do If Someone
You Know Has Been Sexually
Ifyou know someone who has been sexually assaulted,
you can be of help. In the aftermath of asexual assault, the
victim may be experiencing fear, insecurity, and/or frustra
tion and need care and support from others. You, as a
friend (or spouse or family member), can playan important
role by providing reassurance and support.
Allow your friend to reflect upon what has happened
and the feelings experienced, but do not press for details.
Let her/him set the pace. Listening is one of the best things
you can do at this time. In short, be a trusted friend.
If your friend has not received medical attention, en
courage her/him to do so. For additional help and support,
call the University of Florida Police Department's Office
of Victim Services. An advocate can accompany you and
your friend to the medical facility and expedite medical
attention. Know that there is a possibility the medical
facility will notify the police. However, it is up to your
friend to make the final decision as to whether a formal
police report will be initiated.
You can be a valuable resource to your friend by
seeking out and providing information that will assist in
understanding available options. For example, you can
let your friend know that reporting the rape and collecting
evidence does not automatically lock her/him into pursu
ing prosecution of the offender. What it does do is assist
the police in identifying the method and possible identity
of the assailant. Since rapists tend to rape more than
once, any information that can be provided may prevent
the sexual assault of someone else. You may be asked
to testify in judicial proceedings regarding your friend's
remarks, actions, and state of mind, especially if you were
one of the first people she/he approached. Jotting down a
few notes may prove to be of benefit later.
Making the decision to report a sexual assault to the
police and to undergo the subsequent processes of evi
dence collection and possible judicial proceedings will be
very difficult for your friend. Although it is only natural
that you will want to give advice, you must avoid trying
to control the situation. A victim of sexual assault needs
to regain control and must be allowed to make her/his
Whatever decisions are made, your friend needs to
know that she/he will not be judged, disapproved of, or
rejected by you. The victim of sexual assault can suffer a
significant degree of physical and emotional trauma both
during and immediately following the rape that may remain
for a long time. By being patient, supportive, and non
judgmental you can provide a safe accepting climate into
which your friend can release painful feelings.
Sometimes friends or family members take the sexual
assault of a loved one very personally, almost as if the as

Resources for the university community in the areas
of crime prevention and personal safety education are
available from a variety of sources, including the Office
of Student Services, the Student Health Care Center, and
the University of Florida Police Department. In 1976, the
University of Florida Police Department established a
specialized unit to help the department in carrying out its
responsibilities for crime prevention and personal safety
within the university community. This unit directs its
efforts toward reducing criminal opportunity through the
development and implementation of educational programs
and activities. Special emphasis is placed on personal
safety. The ultimate goal of these programs is to make
the university environment as safe and crime-free as pos
sible by raising the level of awareness of individuals and
promoting willingness to assume individual responsibility
in reducing opportunities for crime to occur. All new
University of Florida employees are required to attend an
Employee Orientation Program within a month of their hire
date. UFPD attends all of these monthly orientations and
provides information about campus security procedures
and practices. All new University of Florida students also
receive information about campus security procedures and
practices from UFPD at Preview, the required newstudent
orientation program offered throughout the year.
The UFPD Community
Services Division Crime
Prevention Resource Center
The Community Services Division's Crime Prevention
Resource Center is a fantastic source for a myriad of litera
ture on various topics of crime prevention. Also, anyone
can receive personal counseling on crime prevention and
The University of Florida Police Department partici
pates in the Office of Student Affairs new student orien
station program, Preview. A police officer provides an
overview of safety and security programs, safety policies,
as well as safety tips and resources, and a victim advocate
provides information on victimization issues and assistance
provided by the Office of Victim Services. Preview present
stations are provided for all new freshman and transfer
students. These presentations provide students with the
information they need to make informed decisions about
the choices they will face while helping them learn how to
reduce their risk of becoming a victim of crime.

ticipates in Human Resources' New Employee Orientation
program. A police officer provides an overview of safety
and security programs, safety policies, safety tips, and
resources for additional information at each of the several
sessions held each month.
Both Preview and New Employee Orientation programs
provide opportunities to learn about security programs,
safety policies, and resources available, and both programs
emphasize the importance of personal responsibility in the
control of crime.
UFPD K-9 Team
The UFPD has responded to the need for increased
security precautions on campus and at special events that
take place on the university campus with the formation of
a K-9 unit. The K-9 team, consisting of Officer Matt Davis

Bicycle Security Information Bikes on Campus
Register your bicycle with the University of Florida Police
Department In the event that your bicycle is lost or stolen
you will have a better chance of it being returned to you
when recovered. This is a free service and any UFPD officer
can assist you.
Park and lock your bicycle in well-lighted areas.
Secure your bicycle to a bicycle rack with a quality, hardened
steel "U" type lock. Always lock your bicycle by putting the
U-lock through the bike's frame, a wheel, and the rack. This
is especially important if your bicycle has quick-release
If you have quick-release wheels, remove the front wheel and
place it next to the rear wheel. Then put the U-lock through
both wheels, the frame, and the bicycle rack.
Avoid putting a U-lock through only one wheel. The wheel can
be removed and the frame and remaining wheel can easily be
Place the lock on your bicycle with the key mechanism facing
the ground. This will make it harder for a thief to tamper
with and less likely that the mechanism will fail as a result of
exposure to the weather.
Avoid using cable locks, locking your bicycle to itself, or leaving
it parked in the same place for a long period of time.
Avoid blocking building entrances, ramps, or handicap areas
with your bicycle.
Preventing Auto, Motorcycle,
and Scooter Theft
Don't make your car an easy target for a thief On average
it takes less than 30 seconds to steal a car. Give a thief an inch
and s/he will take your car for miles. Here are some tips to make
it harder for the thieves:
Always lock your car, close the windows, and take the keys.
A recent Gallop poll found that thirty-one percent of us don't
always lock our car doors. Twelve percent leave a window
cracked open, usually for ventilation, and fourteen percent
of us don't always remove our keys.
Never leave valuables in sight. Thieves are attracted not only
by your car, but also its contents.
If at all possible, invest in an alarm system or theft deterrent
Use a high visibility theft deterrent such as a steering wheel
lock or security alarm.
Never leave your car running and unoccupied, even for just
Have your vehicle identification number etched on the car
windows. Drop a business card into your door panels.
This may make your car more easily identifiable to law
enforcement in the event that it is stolen and subsequently
Secure motorcycles and scooters properly. See the UFPD
website at www.police.ul.edu for more information.
Safety Tips for
Always yield to pedestrians.
Watch your "blind spot" for other traffic, such as bicycles and
pedestrians, overtaking you when making right turns.
Always stop for pedestrians in crosswalks.
Always behave in a predictable manner and use turn signals.
Other traffic may not always see you or recognize your
Oversized vehicles must watch for bicycles, pedestrians, and
other traffic when turning.
In Florida, a bicycle is considered a vehicle when
operated on the roadway. As a result, bicycles are subject
to the same responsibilities and regulations as motorists.
The same fines apply to motorists and bicyclists for traffic
violations such as failing to yield to a pedestrian, running
a stop sign or red light, going the wrong way on a one way
street, or riding on the wrong side of the road. Additionally,
bicycles have special requirements such as a mandatory
white head light and red tail light if the bicycle is being
ridden at night; one person per permanently affixed seat; a
requirement to keep at least one hand on the handle bars
at all times; as well as other requirements. Fines for mov
ing violations can be found online at the Alachua County
Clerk of the Court website at http://www.alachuaclerk.
Florida law requires all people 16 years of age or
younger to wear a helmet when riding a bicycle. All cyclists
are encouraged to wear a bike helmet for their safety.
Serious head injuries can be avoided when bicyclists wear
this important piece of safety gear.
The University of Florida Police Department's Bicycle
Safety Education Program is designed to promote a greater
awareness of the duties and responsibilities associated
with the operation of bicycles in the greater campus traf
fic mix. The goal of the program is to provide members of
the university community with a desirable combination
of education, encouragement, enforcement, and facilities
necessary to gain voluntary acceptance of and compli
ance with bicycle safety standards and the law. For more
information about bicycle safety and bicycle laws, please
come to the University of Florida Police Department's
Community Services Division, or call (352) 3921409.
Mopeds and Motor Scooters
Mopeds are considered motor vehicles unless they are
being operated solely by human power. When they are
under engine power, they cannot
be ridden on
7 7^H^^ jH *
sidewalks. Motor scooters are also considered motor
vehicles and cannot be driven on sidewalks or in bike
lanes. Both mopeds and motor scooters are subject to the
same laws as all other motor vehicles including running
stop signs, failing to yield to pedestrians, and speeding. For
more information, call the Community Services Division
at (352) 3921409.
Motorcycles on Campus
Any person operating a motorcycle on campus is
subject to the same laws and responsibilities as the driver
of any other vehicle. Motorcycle operators are required to
have proper driver's license endorsements and any rider
choosing not to wear a helmet must be over 21 years of
age, carry 0io,ooo or more of personal injury protection
insurance, and wear proper eye protection as provided by
Florida State Statute 316.211.
Pedestrian Right of Way
Walking is a primary mode of transportation around
the University of Florida, and vehicles must yield to
pedestrians in a clearly marked crosswalk. Even though
vehicles are required to yield, always remember to make
eye contact with the driver before proceeding into the path
of an oncoming vehicle. Pedestrians must yield to vehicles
when crossing anywhere other than a marked crosswalk
Traffic Safety Week
Each fall and spring semester, the University of
Florida Police Department's Community Services Divi
sion presents Traffic Safety Week to promote traffic and
pedestrian safety. Police officers and members of the
community work together at crosswalks and intersec
tions to emphasize the importance of traffic safety by
distributing the "The Headlight on Traffic" brochure
featuring the "Street Safe Gator" logo to all interested
persons. The brochure is filled with helpful information
and tips for traffic and pedestrian safety.

Off campus apartment complexes, townhome/
condominium communities, and other multi-family
dwellings pose unique problems. Because of the
temporary nature of many residents of rent/lease
properties, you need to make an extra effort to be
aware of your environment. This includes knowl

behalf of your safety.
The Voluntary Inspection Program (VIP) is in
tended to provide prospective renters with informa

have voluntarily agreed to be inspected on the basis
of the Community Safety Guidelines. These guide

and the University of Florida Police Department.
Residential rental property owners voluntarily
request inspections under this program, and only a

Santa Fe Community College Police Department.
A list of the guidelines used by the inspectors as
well as properties inspected and certified according
to these guidelines is available on the UFPD web
site at http://www.police.ufl.edu/csd/csdrip list.
