A Sexual Assault Evidence Kit (SAEK) is usually collected at the hospital. Only sexual assault nurses can do these. Consent must be given to have the kit released to the police. If you choose to go to the hospital, police will not be called unless permission is given. Kits can still be done and medical injuries can be treated without police involvement. For survivors under 16, FACS will be consulted. If any information disclosed identifies a child being harmed, FACS must be consulted. If there is a crime in progress, suicidal thoughts are expressed, or there is intent to hurt someone else, the police may need to be informed, depending on an assessment of the viability of threat (plans, means to carry out plans, time frame set out). You are entitled to have an advocate with you through all police interactions may they present themselves.
