As noted above in item '4) How soon will I receive a reply to my online report?', responses to reports made via this form are not immediate, so we actively encourage you to obtain emergency support where you need it. In the instance of a physical attack, evidence is better secured at the time of the incident – be it witnesses or forensics.
LSE staff and external organisations can support you in considering whether or not to make a police report. That would be an entirely separate process from reporting through this online form (though please see item '5) How will the information be used?' above regarding disclosures that concern potential risk to an individual or relate to a possible criminal offence).
I witnessed an incident, although I was not directly involved – can I make a report?
The School has also introduced a new online course 'Consent Matters: Boundaries, Respect and Positive Intervention'. In addition to making a report, you might also like to take the course, to learn more about positive bystander interventions.
