base information

I'm a victim of sexual assault; what do I do?

If you or someone you know is sexually assaulted, the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response office can help. They are a voluntary resource to help guide you through this difficult time, and their services are independent of any investigation or trial. While optional, it is highly recommended that you take the following steps following an assault:

  1. Get to a safe location away from your attacker.
  2. Contact the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response office, chaplain or UCC to maintain restricted reporting.
  3. Preserve evidence; do not shower, wash hands or brush teeth. (To preserve evidence place unwashed clothing or garments in a paper bag- not a plastic bag!)
  4. Get medical attention from a military medical treatment facility.
  5. If you think you were drugged, ask for a urinalysis. 
  6. Write down and record all details you remember.

Don't blame yourself; it isn't your fault!

Sexual Assault Defined

Sexual Assault
Sexual Assault is defined as intentional sexual contact, characterized by use of force, threats, intimidation, abuse of authority, or when the victim does not or cannot consent. Sexual assault is also unwanted sexual contact that is aggravated, abusive or wrongful, or attempts to commit these acts. 

Consent
Consent is defined as words or overt acts indicating a freely given agreement to the sexual conduct at issue by a competent person. An expression of lack of consent through words or conduct means there is no consent. Lack of verbal or physical resistance or submission resulting from the accused's use of force, threat of force, or placing another person in fear does not constitute consent. A current or previous dating relationship by itself or the manner of dress of the person involved with the accused in the sexual conduct at issue shall not constitute as consent. 

SAPR reporting options

Restricted reporting enables active duty military, guard and reserve on active status and their dependents 18 years and older, DoD civilians, and NAF employees to report allegations of sexual assault to specific personnel without triggering an investigation. 

Retired military, dependents of retired military and Department of Defense contractors are not eligible for restricted reporting.

Unrestricted reporting enables an individual to report a sexual assault through normal reporting channels which includes the victim's chain of command, law enforcement, AFOSI or other criminal investigative service. 

Both options provide the individual with privileged communication, medical treatment, forensic evidence collection, counseling services and legal representation. 

To maintain restricted reporting, contact the SAPR office at (208) 828-7272/6622 (DSN: 728-7272/6622), the UCC, or a volunteer Victim Advocate.

If you call Command Post to contact the SAPR office, ask for the phone number and make the call yourself. The Command Post records all calls, and restricted reporting will be lost!
