Lincolnshire Police are encouraging victims to come forward and report cases of rape and sexual crimes.
They have launched a campaign with the slogan "No means no" to highlight there is no place for sexual abuse in society. Statistics show a link between rape and alcohol, but the campaign's main aim is to make people aware alcohol can never be used as an excuse for sexual violence.
Officers will go into schools, a set of posters and pamphlets have been designed and 'No Means No!' wristbands have been made.
