Specially Trained Officers (STOs)
If you choose to involve the Police you will be met by an officer specially trained to work with individuals who have experienced sexual assault or rape. They will speak to you about the criminal justice process and take details from you about the incident. Within West Midlands Police the STOs work within the Public Protection Unit and like the doctors there are specially trained officers available 24 hours a day. The officer will be plain clothed and will usually drive an unmarked car.
