University Students Given Rape Alarms

Filed under: Crime News — admin @ 1:23 pm

Concerned Lancashire Police are giving away hundreds of rape alarms to female students at a Lancashire University. Edge Hill University has been targetted for the iniative to help cut-down on alchohol related crime including rape. The female students will be given a personal rape alarm and guidance leaflets about proper drinking limits and how to cut down on excessive drinking.

Government figures have revealed that a third of all sexual assaults will take place when the victim is under the influence of alcohol. It has also been noted that sexual assaults under alchohol far outnumber ‘date-rape-drugs’. Alcohol is the preffered drug of choice for rapists claim The University of Surrey.

By issuing female students with personal protection i.e. the rape alarms and also engaging with them in learning about alchohol abuse it is hoped that the students will become more aware of the real dangers that alchohol abuse leads too. Rapists don’t need to spike a girls drink when they are already the worse-for-wear with alchohol.
