If you choose to file a criminal complaint, WPI Campus Police will provide you with support throughout the process. A criminal complaint is governed by applicable criminal statutes and the standard of proof is “beyond a reasonable doubt.”  Potential sanctions include all applicable criminal sanctions, up to and including incarceration.


You are not required to file a criminal complaint. You may choose to file a criminal complaint in addition to a University complaint. For more information, contact Campus Police:

There are many community resources that can also support you in the process of filing a criminal complaint. Pathways for Change and YWCA Daybreak both offer free services including court advocacy.
