 From the police

Police has produced a series of videos for victims of sexual assault that outlines what is involved in reporting a sexual assault to Police. We collaborated with various support agencies in creating these videos and our goal is that they become a useful resource, are widely shared and of course reach victims and others who can benefit most from their information.

Domestic Violence and Substance Abuse

Certainly, not everyone who is addicted to drugs or alcohol is abusive (whether physically, mentally, or both) towards his or her partner. Likewise, not every domestic violence abuser has an issue with substance abuse or misuse. However, statistics tell us that, far too often, the two do go hand in hand.

DrugDangers

Our goal at Drug Dangers is to keep the public educated and informed of all defective medical devices and dangerous medications that are currently on the market. As an online resource sponsored by Seeger Weiss LLP, Drug Dangers strives to provide accurate, relevant medical information all in one place. Under the unfortunate circumstance that you or a loved one has been injured by faulty medications or devices, the attorneys of Seeger Weiss are committed to helping you receive the justice you deserve.

Lodging sexual assault claims with the police

The web page has sections on:

 Sexual assault and consent

The web page is a single place where members of the public can find out information on how to report a sexual assault and where to get specialist support. 

A key aspect of the web page is the ‘Feedback’ section where victims of sexual assault can complete a short survey to provide feedback to police on specific areas of the investigation, from how they were treated when they first spoke to Police, through to the ongoing investigation and the final result.

Victims are also able to provide feedback on the support and communication that they were provided throughout their dealings with Police .   The survey may be completed anonymously. 

We would appreciate if you could encourage your clients to complete the survey, even if they choose not to engage with police,  as the survey submissions will be sent to PNHQ for collating and evaluating and used to continually improve our service to victims.

PTSD and Substance Use Disorders
Studies show that about 14% to 43% of children go through at least one trauma. Of those children and teens who have had a trauma, 3% to 15% of girls and 1% to 6% of boys develop PTSD. Our organization works to spread awareness of this issue and to be an informational resource for those impacted by alcohol and drug dependence.
