Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR)

Sexual Assault is a criminal act and will not be tolerated. The Marine Corps' goal is to eliminate sexual assault within the Corps and to assist those Marines and sailors assigned to Marine Corps units affected by sexual assault. (MCO 1752.5B)

The III MIG Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program provides 24/7 support and advocacy to all active duty Marines and sailors who are victims of sexual assault.

The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program addresses the prevention of sexual assault through awareness, education and training.  We also ensure that all Marines who are victims of sexual assault are "treated with dignity, sensitivity, and without prejudice" (MCO 1752.5B)

Seeking Support

The first priority of the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program is the care of Marines.  Many victims of sexual assault do not report the crime to anyone.  In order to ensure that victims get the medical treatment and support services that they need, Marines have two reporting options for sexual assault.

Restricted and Unrestricted Reporting

Restricted Reporting

If a Marine wants to receive medical treatment and support services without triggering the official investigation process, he or she can make a confidential report to any of the following individuals:

Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC)
Uniformed Victim Advocate (UVA)
Victim Advocate
Healthcare Provider or other medical personnel
Chaplain

When a Marine decides to make a restricted report, they receive medical care, including the collection of evidence if indicated, and counseling without notifying command or law enforcement officials. The SARC will notify the commanding officer that an assault occurred without providing identifying information about the victim.  A Marine who elects to make a restricted report can always change to an unrestricted report.

Unrestricted Reporting

The unrestricted reporting option allows a Marine to receive medical treatment, counseling, and an official investigation of the crime.  An unrestricted report of sexual assault can be made to the following individuals:

Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC)
Uniformed Victim Advocate (UVA)
Victim Advocate
Healthcare Provider or other medical personnel
Chaplain
Chain of Command
Law enforcement
Legal Personnel

Details of the incident will only be shared with personnel who have a legitimate need to know. This option allows the Marine Corps to potentially hold the offender accountable.

The term "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 includes rape, forcible sodomy (oral or anal sex), and other unwanted sexual contact that is aggravated, abusive, or wrongful (to include unwanted and inappropriate sexual contact), or attempts to commit these acts.

"Consent" means words or overt actions 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 consent.
