Sexual Assault Response Coordinators and Victim Advocates are available at all Air Force Global Strike Command installations to assist victims and survivors of sexual assault. The Base SARC serves as the single point of contact for integrating and coordinating care for sexual assault victims 24/7, 365 days a year.
Help is just a phone call away; If you have been sexually assaulted, please call the SARC at:
Sexual Assault is criminal conduct that falls well short of the standards America expects of its men and women in uniform and is a violation of our Air Force Core Values.
Sexual Assault is defined as intentional sexual conduct, characterized by use of force, physical threat or abuse of authority or when the victim does not or cannot consent. Sexual assault includes rape, nonconsensual sodomy (oral or anal sex), indecent assault (unwanted, inappropriate sexual contact or fondling), or attempts to commit these acts. Sexual assault can occur without regard to gender or spousal relationship or age of victim.
Consent shall not be deemed or construed to mean the failure by the victim to offer physical resistance. Consent is not given when a person uses force, threat of force, coercion or when the victim is asleep, incapacitated, or unconscious.
Sexual Harassment reporting options (unrestricted and restricted) are now available for active-duty members who have experienced unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct that is sexual in nature. When the incident occurs in the work environment and is a condition of the individual's employment, effects the individual's work performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment individuals may file a restricted or unrestricted report with the SAPR Office. Installation Equal Opportunity (EO) offices will continue to process sexual harassment complaints in accordance with DAFI 36-2710. Confidentiality applies to all SAPR services.
The Air Force has instituted new avenues for reporting sexual assault in the form of Restricted and Unrestricted Reporting. Restricted Reporting allows a victim to report a Sexual Assault without triggering an investigation. It is intended to give the victim (survivor) time and control over the release of their information. Further, it also empowers the survivor to make an informed decision about participating in the criminal process.
Unrestricted reporting is any report of sexual assault made through normal reporting channels (for example: reports to chain of command, security forces, and/or Air Force Office of Investigation). All active duty members, dependents 18 and older and civilians who have independent access to the base are eligible.
Police investigation will ensue and commander will be notified by SARC in a private and confidential manner. Your Information will be handled discreetly by your commander and those with an official need to know. SARC will intervene and will be actively involved to help with your needs. You will receive: medical care, evidence collected, victim advocate and legal assistance. Your report CANNOT go Restricted.
Restricted Reporting is intended to give the victim (survivor) time and control over the release of their information. Further, it also empowers the survivor to make an informed decision about participating in the criminal process.
Restricted reporting is available to active duty military and dependents 18 and older, and civilian employees. For confidentiality, your report will be taken by the SARC, who will not contact police or your commander. Evidence can be collected, and you will receive medical care, a victim advocate and legal assistance. This report CAN go Unrestricted at any time.
The CATCH Program gives people making a Restricted Report an opportunity to anonymously disclose suspect information to help the Department of Defense identify serial offenders. CATCH allows sexual assault victims (Service members and adult dependents) to discover if the suspect in their Restricted Report may have also assaulted another person (a "match" in the CATCH website), and having that knowledge, decide whether to convert their Restricted Report to Unrestricted to initiate an investigation of the serial offender suspect. For more information, contact your local Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC).
