If your partner is too drunk to walk, then they’re probably unable to consent (in police work, we call that a clue). Having sex with someone who is unable to consent is rape. #getconsent

The majority of sexual assaults reported to @oupolice are committed by people the victim knew and trusted, and they happen in private spaces. No one is entitled to have sex--if you have sex with someone who doesn’t consent, you’re a rapist and we’ll hold you accountable.

Our officers are always on patrol, but we can’t control everything that happens on campus. Watch out for each other, challenge conduct that perpetuates rape culture, and let us know if you need our help. We are only a phone call away!

Alcohol is not an excuse for committing a crime. Even if you’re intoxicated, having sex with someone without their consent means you are raping them. Don’t excuse a friend’s behavior because they’re drunk. We won’t.

Our patrol officers are focusing on residential areas, but we can't be everywhere at once. If you see someone in need, intervene directly--if safe and able--or delegate to others if you need help. And remember we're here to help, too. Don't be afraid to call us! @JennyHallJones
