How to Get Help

What is Sexual Assault?

Teal SAPR word cloud ribbonSexual assault is intentional sexual contact, characterized by the use of force, threat, abuse of authority, or when the victim does not or cannot consent. This includes: rape, nonconsensual sodomy, indecent assault, or any attempts to commit these acts. Sexual assault can occur without regard to gender, spousal relationship, or age of the victim. Sexual assault is a crime punishable under the UCMJ as well as state and federal laws.

What to Do if You Have Been Sexually Assaulted

  • Find a safe environment, away from the offender.
  • Call the SAPR hotline: 1-800-841-0937.
  • Seek emergency medical attention, if necessary.

How can a SARC (Sexual Assault Response Coordinator) help?

  • Help determining if you need to seek medical care for a forensic exam. If you are bleeding, in pain, or notice other injuries, please seek immediate medical care.
  • Assistance navigating the military and civilian criminal justice system(s), if the victim desires law enforcement involvement.
  • Information and referral for other resources, both on and off base, including: medical, safe housing, counseling, support groups, spiritual support, and legal services.
