#AceNewsReport – Mar.21: The local police team has stepped up their patrols in and around the area, in partnership with security services at the university, to offer reassurance and engage with students about the concerns that have been raised online.
We don’t want people to worry unnecessarily, however, we don’t take the concerns lightly and promise to do everything we can to ensure that students living on the campus feel safe:
Police statement following claims of sexual harassment and abductions on The Vale: ‘We understand that students at the University of Birmingham are concerned and worried following claims of sexual harassment, sexual assault and abductions outside Shackleton and Chamberlain tower on The Vale campus in recent weeks’
18th March 2021
This is the only incident that we’re aware of.
If you’re worried, please make sure that you speak to someone. The Guild of Students represent and support all students enrolled at the University of Birmingham. We also have a small team of liaison officers – one PC and two PCSO’s – based at University of Birmingham full-time. The police liaison room in the University Centre (near the Spar) will reopen when coronavirus restrictions are lifted. In the meantime our officers can always be contacted via their Twitter account.
Here is the @WMPolice statement in relation to safety concerns on the Vale: https://t.co/5VeiUzbnT0 If you’re worried, please make sure that you speak to someone. Whether that's our @GuildofStudents, a campus officer @UoBTeamWMP or via our You report We Support service— Uni of Birmingham (@unibirmingham) March 18, 2021
We know that sexual harassment often goes unreported, with victims feeling shocked, upset or embarrassed by what has happened. However, these are serious crimes. We need to ensure that we have as much information as possible on every incident that has taken place. If we don’t know that something has happened – we can’t take action to stop it and bring people to justice.
If you have witnessed an incident of this nature in The Vale in recent weeks, and have not yet reported it, please get in touch. You don’t need to tell us directly if you don’t feel comfortable speaking to the police right now.
If you want to remain 100% anonymous you can report via Crimestoppers. Tell them what you know, not who you are.
Victim Support is an independent charity, that help people affected by crime or traumatic events get the support they need. Visit their website for more information on sexual harassment and sexual assault.
