What to Do After a Crime

  1. Normal Reactions to Expect After a Crime

    It is not unusual for people who are impacted by serious crimes to experience some significant changes to the way they think, feel and behave.

  2. Steps to Take Immediately After a Crime

    Sometimes injuries that do no seem serious at first can get worse later. As soon as possible after the assault, see a doctor or go to a hospital even if you don't think you've been seriously injured.

  3. Taking Care of Yourself After a Crime

    Taking care of yourself after you've survived a crime, is the most important thing you can do. Talk about what has happened to you with supportive friends, partners, or family members. Eat, sleep and be respectful of the messages your body is giving you.
