Police Department

For students in or headed to college

We at the Middletown Police want all of our college aged residents and students to be safe and aware of the potential dangers that can occur in the college setting. Often college is the first time young people experience freedom from the watchful eyes of their families and are left to guard their own safety. While college is a rewarding and exhilerating experience, it is important that you recognize the potential dangers that abound and know what to do should you become a victim. Should you ever need police services, do not hesitate to come to us for help. We are here to serve you. The following information can be useful to you while you embark on your college journey.

The first report released by The White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault detailed a chilling statistic: one in five college students experiences sexual assault during their college career. That, combined with the ACLU’s estimation that 95% of U.S. campus rapes go unreported, highlights a serious problem on college campuses. Our resource aims to increase awareness about sexual assault and abusive partner relationships by addressing the following topics:

  • What is Sexual Assault?
  • Recognizing Abuse
  • Sexual Assault Prevention
  • What to Do After an Assault
