Sexual Violence and rape are never right.
It is up to us to address and prevent it.

The Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office is committed to a Zero-Tolerance policy of prison rape and sexual victimization. This Zero-Tolerance policy affects all of the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office, including every employee and volunteer or vendor, and every person under correctional supervision. Report any assaults or victimizations that are sexual in nature to a staff member, in writing or by calling the hot line at 508-563-4484. Any reports will be kept as confidential, as the circumstance allows. False reporting may be prosecuted.
