Help for victims of sexual assault in the DoD community is a call, click or text away. The SafeHelpline provides live, one-on-one crisis support and information by trained staff. Call (877) 995-5247; go to www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247 CONUS; (202) 470-5546 OCONUS (may be additional charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows a victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services and safety interventions such as a Military Protective Order (MPO), separation from offender, expedited transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim can report to his/her chain-of-command, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR Victim Advocate (VA), SARC, and his/her CO shall commence an investigation. Restricted reporting allows a confidential report, which does not trigger either command nor law enforcement notification and the victim can have a SAPR VA, and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim can disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care provider and/or a chaplain. To contact the NASP 24/7 VA, call 449-9231/2. To contact the SARC during working hours, call 452-5990, ext. 0; or during and after working hours, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
