The Victim Advocate Program (VAP) is actively involved in community engagement to support survivors of domestic violence and child sexual abuse. Our program focuses providing supportive and compassionate services to Military and Civilian Survivors. Our certified Victim Advocates (VA) have extensive experience to aid those impacted by Domestic Violence and Child Sexual Abuse, navigate and receive services in a complex environment.  Our VA offer both restricted and unrestricted reporting for Domestic Violence:

  • Restricted Reporting- Allows survivors the option of receiving medical treatment, advocacy and counseling without triggering the official investigation or Command involvement. 
  • Unrestricted Reporting- Survivors receive medical treatment, advocacy, counseling, and an official investigation of the allegation.  This option allows the widest range of rights and protections to the victim.
