Acquaintance Rape of College Students

Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office), 2003 (revised 2013)

This guide describes the problem of acquaintance rape of college students, addressing its scope, causes, and contributing factors; methods for analyzing it on a particular campus; tested responses; and measures for assessing response effectiveness. With this information, police and public safety officers can more effectively prevent the problem. This guide is part of the Problem-Specific Guides series. Documents in the series summarize knowledge about how police can reduce the harm caused by specific crime and disorder problems. They are guides to prevention and to improving the overall response to incidents, not to investigating offenses or handling specific incidents.
