NOW YOU SEE: Earlier today, Tuesday, April 30, 2019, Commissioner Gross demonstrated his support of the Boston based Now You See child abuse and sexual assault awareness campaign. Now You See is an ever-growing collection of the real eyes and words of children, adult survivors and families who have been affected by sexual and physical abuse and exploitation. The program was created by Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins and the Children’s Advocacy Center of Suffolk County.
The men and women of the Boston Police Department are proud to support and celebrate the courage of survivors everywhere.
As always, we encourage victims of sexual assault or abuse to share that information with police. If you have been a victim of a sexual assault that has or has not been reported to police and would feel more comfortable seeking confidential advice from a non-law enforcement agency or representative, the Boston Police Department advises and encourages you to call the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center (BARCC) at 1 (800) 841-8371. BARCC provides free and confidential counseling, case management, legal and medical advocacy services to survivors in the greater Boston area.
