Reporting Assault

Restricted Reporting

Restricted Reporting allows an Active Duty Soldier who is a sexual assault victim, on a confidential basis, to disclose the details of his/her assault to specifically identified individuals and receive medical treatment and counseling, without triggering the official investigative process or command notification.

Soldiers who are sexually assaulted and desire restricted reporting under this policy must report the assault to the Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC), Victim Advocate, Chaplain or a Healthcare Provider.

Unrestricted Reporting

Unrestricted Reporting allows a Soldier who is sexually assaulted and desires medical treatment, counseling, and an official investigation of his/her allegation to use current reporting channels (e.g., chain of command, law enforcement, or he/she may report the incident to the SARC or the Victim Advocate).

Upon notification of a reported sexual assault, the SARC will immediately notify a Victim Advocate. Additionally, with the victim's consent, the healthcare provider shall conduct a forensic examination, which may include the collection of evidence. Details regarding the incident will be limited to only those personnel who have a legitimate need to know.
