Sexual Assault Prevention and Response


To reinforce the AF's commitment to eliminate sexual assault through a comprehensive program that provides prevention and awareness education, ensures compassionate and effective response for survivors, and cultivates a base-wide wingman culture that is predicated on mutual respect and trust.

The Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC) implements and manages the base SAPR program and is the main point of contact for reporting, response and victim advocacy. The SARC reports directly to the Vice Wing Commander.

The SARC is responsible for ensuring a victim support system that provides 24/7 victim response, victim advocates, information, referrals, case management, and support services for sexual assault victims who are eligible for services at AAFB. Victims who are minors (under age 18) are referred to the Family Advocacy Program for assistance.

Victim Advocates (VA) are volunteers who provide essential support, liaison services and care to the victim. Only military personnel and DoD civilian employees selected by the SARC may serve as VAs.

Restricted Reporting: Available to active duty members and their dependents, age 18 and above. This reporting option provides medical treatment (including a forensic exam, if desired), mental health services, chaplain services, Victim Advocate support, and other referral options, without launching an investigation or notification of the victim's chain of command. Service members and their adult dependents that are sexually assaulted and desire restricted reporting must report the assault to one of the following:

* SARC
* VA
* A healthcare provider
* A Chaplain

Unrestricted reporting: Available to military and civilians over the age of 18. Allows for medical treatment, counseling, command involvement, and an official investigation of the crime. When selecting unrestricted reporting, the victim should use current reporting channels (chain of command, law enforcement, the SARC, or request healthcare providers to notify law enforcement).

Active duty members, Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard members and their dependents 18 and older who are eligible for treatment in the military health system, and Air Force civilian (appropriated and non-appropriated) employees. SAPR provides support for adult sexual assault victims when the perpetrator is someone other than the victim’s spouse or same sex domestic partner.

The Family Advocacy Program manages sexual assault allegations when the alleged offender is the partner in context of a spousal relationship, same sex domestic partnership, unmarried intimate partner relationship or military dependents who are 17 years of age and younger.

The SARC serves as the installation's primary point of contact for integrating and coordinating sexual assault victim care services for eligible recipients. Services may begin at the initial report of sexual assault and continue through disposition and resolution of issues related to the victim's health and well-being. The SARC reports directly to the installation wing commander (or equivalent) or installation vice wing commander, executing the Air Force's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response program at the installation level. SARCs assist unit commanders as necessary to ensure victims of sexual assault receive appropriate and responsive care.

Your report will remain restricted and confidential. However, if another individual reports your assault to their chain of command or law enforcement, an investigation will be initiated if the case falls under the jurisdiction of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations.

Yes, your SARC will take your report of sexual assault regardless of when or where the assault occurred. If you choose to make your report unrestricted, the SARC will help notify the appropriate law enforcement officials.

Yes, with the exception of Air Force civilian employees. If you are eligible for SAPR support services, then you can file a report with any DoD SARC regardless of location. However, Air Force civilian employees are currently the only Department of Defense civilian employees eligible for SAPR services, and can only receive SAPR services from Air Force SARCs and SAPR victim advocates.

SARCs and SAPR victim advocates are responsible by law and Department of Defense and Air Force Instructions to protect the confidentiality of both restricted and unrestricted reports. SAPR personnel who violate confidentiality rules are subject to the full range of disciplinary action ranging from administrative action to court-martial, depending on the status of the individual in question and the nature of the violation.

All three are nationally certified to support victims of sexual assault, can take both restricted and unrestricted reports of sexual assault and have confidentiality under military regulations. All can provide exceptional care and support for victims, SARCs and full time SAPR victim advocates also have additional administrative and managerial duties.
