There are many options for reporting abuse depending who the perpetrator is or where the abuse took place. I suggest reporting to the local police where the abuse occurred. I would call ahead and ask to speak directly to the person in charge of sex crimes. The victim will be required to give the police a statement either at the police station or they will send someone to your house. I would insist on waiting until the sex crimes investigator is available to take the report. I did not know this when it happened to my daughter. When I took my daughter to the police station to report we spoke to an officer that didn't specifically work on these types of cases and he made a comment that was totally out of line and showed his lack of training.
