Sexual Assault Prevention & Response (SAPR)

. Primary focus is victims of sexual assault, domestic violence and other
interpersonal violence

. Promote the (SAPR) program's purpose of eliminating incidents of sexual
assault through a comprehensive program that centers on:

-Prevention via educational training programs

-Responding to incidents of sexual assault

-Long term support to ensure the needs of the victims and closely related
individuals are taken care of by integrating and coordinating sexual assault
victim care from an initial report of sexual assault through disposition and
resolution of issues related to the victim's health and well-being

Reporting Options


-Allows an alleged sexual assault victim (on a confidential basis), to
disclose the details of his/her assault without triggering the official
investigative process to specifically identify individuals and offered
medical treatment and counseling

-Service members desiring restricted reporting under this policy should
report the assault to the SARC or a healthcare provider. Consistent with
current "privileged communication" policy, the assault may also be reported
to a chaplain.

-Who may make a restricted report?

-Military personnel of the Armed Forces and the Coast Guard. This include
members on active duty, the Reserve component (provided they are performing
federal duty) and members of the National Guard in federal status (Title
10). Retired members of any component and family members are not eligible.

-Intent of restricted reporting:

-Allow a victim additional time and increased control over the release and
management of his/her personal information

-Empower him/her to seek relevant information and support to make more
informed decisions about participating in the criminal investigation


-A service member who is sexually assaulted and desires medical treatment,
counseling and an official investigation of his/her allegation should use
current reporting channels, e.g., chain of command, law enforcement or via
the SARC

-When the individual elects to make an unrestricted report to command and
law enforcement, the need for curtailing knowledge of covered communications

-Upon notification of a reported sexual assault, the SARC will immediately
assign a Victim Advocate (VA). When the unrestricted report is made, the
SARC, VA and involved healthcare provider may disclose any information
provided by the victim to those who have a need to know

-Personnel with an official need to know will normally include commanders of
the victim and subject, law enforcement and legal personnel
