Reporting & Non-Reporting Options
There is a Non-Report option for individuals ages 18 and above who arrive within the 96 hour window. This option does not involve the police in any way. Survivors who choose this option are able to complete a forensic exam with a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE). Evidence collected in the exam will be stored for two years should the survivor choose to file a police report.
Sexual assault of anyone under the age of 18 must be reported to law enforcement under Texas mandatory reporting laws. If you are a survivor who is under age 18, over age 60, or disabled, it’s important to understand the state’s mandatory reporting laws. Please call our hotline 210-349-7273 for more information.
