Sex Assault 

In Colorado, victims of sexual assault have three reporting options: A Law Enforcement Report, a Medical Report, or Anonymous report.

If you choose to provide a Law Enforcement Report, you choose to report the assault directly to law enforcement and cooperate with a law enforcement investigation.

For a medical or anonymous report, you may seek services at hospitals that provide Forensic Nurse Exams (FNE). You do not need to cooperate with law enforcement to seek these services. You may choose to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation at a later time.
