The Kansas City Missouri Police department is reminding people the dangers of online dating applications. There has been an increase in reported sexual assaults and it is important to follow some basic safety protocols.
Meeting unknown people from online sites can be of high risk. If you plan to meet in person, take extreme caution by meeting in a public place, do not enter a vehicle or go to a secluded location that is away from public view. Let a family member or friend know your location, how long you plan to be away and as much information as possible about the person you are meeting.
If you find yourself to be a victim of sexual assault, please contact 911 and respond to the nearest hospital for care.
Our detectives are here for you, will listen to you, and want to bring your case to justice.
