The Pikeville City Police are in the best position to secure evidence of a crime. Physical evidence of a criminal sexual assault should be collected from the person within 120 hours, though evidence can often be obtained from towels, sheets, clothing, etc., for longer periods. If you have been a victim of a criminal sexual assault, you should go to a local medical facility before washing yourself or your clothing.

No. The severity of the infraction is a serious concern and UPIKE does not want any circumstances to inhibit the reporting of sexual misconduct.
