Sexual Assault Prevention & Response

The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response program’s primary goals are to prevent and respond to sexual assault, eliminating it from our ranks through a balance of focused education, comprehensive response, compassionate advocacy, and just adjudication in order to promote professionalism, respect, and trust, while preserving mission readiness. Services are confidential and available 24 hours, 7 days a week.

The program is available to:

  • All Active Duty Military or Coast Guard
  • Reservists
  • National Guard
  • Military dependents 18 years of age and older (if the sexual assault is perpetrated by someone other than a spouse or intimate partner)
  • Service members who are on active duty but were victims PRIOR to enlistment or commissioning
  • DoD Civilian/Contractor personnel when they are stationed or performing duties OCONUS and eligible for treatment in the MHS.

Note: If you do not fall into any of the above categories but would like to receive assistance please contact your SAPR program or the Safe Helpline who can refer you to local civilian resources that offer confidential services.

It is important to understand and preserve your reporting options.  By contacting our 24/7 Helpline you can speak confidentially with a SAPR team member to learn more about options and available resources.
