The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program reinforces the Army's
commitment to eliminate incidents of sexual assault through a comprehensive
policy that centers on awareness and prevention, training and education,
victim advocacy, response, reporting, and accountability. Army policy promotes
sensitive care and confidential reporting for victims of sexual assault and
accountability for those who commit these crimes.
The goals of the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program are:
Create a climate that minimizes sexual assault incidents, which impact
Army personnel, Army civilians, and family members, and, if an incident
should occur, ensure that victims and subjects are treated according to Army policy.
Create a climate that encourages victims to report incidents of sexual assault without fear.
Establish sexual assault prevention training and awareness programs to educate Soldiers.
Ensure sensitive and comprehensive treatment to restore victims' health and well-being.
Ensure leaders understand their roles and responsibilities regarding response to sexual
assault victims, thoroughly investigate allegations of sexual assault, and take appropriate
administrative and disciplinary action.
