Rape Survivor Services

Rape Survivor Services

The Rockport Police Department recognizes that by its very nature, the crime of rape has a damaging effect on the survivor, both physically and mentally. It is, therefore, imperative that our officers conduct a comprehensive investigation with an understanding of the sensitive aspects of such incidents.  Our police department has officers that are specifically trained as sexual assault investigators, who will work to ensure that the survivors of rape are provided the appropriate services and the investigation is conducted in the most professional manner.

If you or someone you know is a rape survivor and in need of assistance, please contact the police department in-person or via telephone at 978-546-1212, so the proper services can be offered.  Help is available, so you do not have to endure the situation on your own.
