Start by Believing- AJPD's commitment to victim's of sexual assault
Start by Believing is a public awareness campaign uniquely focused on the public response to sexual assault. Because a friend or family member is typically the first person a victim confides in after an assault, each individual's personal reaction is the first step in a long path toward justice and healing. Knowing how to respond is critical-a negative response can worsen the trauma and foster an environment where sexual assault predators face zero consequences for their crimes.
Apache Junction Police Department was one of the first agencies in the state of Arizona to pledge to Start By Believing. We ask you to join us by making your own personal pledge.
