Cornwall Police Service

Sexual Assault & Child Abuse

The Cornwall Police Service maintains a Sexual Assault and Child Abuse (SACA) Unit mandated to investigate allegations of sexual assault against all members of our community. However, officers assigned to the unit have specialized training in the investigation of sexual abuse against children.

Abuse of children is one of the most tragic offences in any community. It is important that the offence be investigated, prosecuted if necessary and that the involved family obtains professional support.

As part of SACA's mandate the unit works in partnership with a variety of federal, provincial and municipal agencies and organizations to ensure that all of the needs of victims of abuse are met in an ongoing effort to make Cornwall a safer community for children to grow and prosper.
