The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program

The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program reinforces the Air Force's commitment to eliminate incidents of sexual assault through awareness and prevention training, education, victim advocacy, response, reporting and accountability. The Air Force promotes sensitive care and confidential reporting for victims of sexual assault and accountability for those who commit these crimes.

Moody Air Force Base Sexual Assault Prevention and Response: The Moody Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program provides 24-hours, seven-days a week sexual assault response capability for all active duty members and dependents 18 years old and above and Air Force Civilians. Anyone who feels they have been a victim of sexual assault may contact the appropriate office.

Help is just a phone call away. If you have been sexually assaulted, please call the Moody SAPR Program’s 24/7 SARC Response Helpline at 229-257-7272 (SARC). After you contact the SARC office, you will be assigned a trained Victim Advocate. Your Victim Advocate will explain reporting options, and may meet you at the hospital for a medical evaluation, treatment and examination. It is your option to accept or decline victim advocacy.

Sexual Assault Defined

Sexual Assault is criminal conduct that falls well short of the standards America expects of its men and women in uniform and is a violation of our Air Force Core Values. 

Sexual Assault is defined as intentional sexual conduct, characterized by use of force, physical threat or abuse of authority or when the victim does not or cannot consent. Sexual assault includes rape, nonconsensual sodomy (oral or anal sex), indecent assault (unwanted, inappropriate sexual contact or fondling), or attempts to commit these acts. Sexual assault can occur without regard to gender or spousal relationship or age of victim. 

Consent shall not be deemed or construed to mean the failure by the victim to offer physical resistance. Consent is not given when a person uses force, threat of force, coercion or when the victim is asleep, incapacitated, or unconscious.

Reporting Options

The Air Force has instituted two avenues for victims to report a sexual assault in the form of Restricted and Unrestricted Reporting. 

 

Restricted Reporting allows a victim to report a Sexual Assault without triggering an investigation. It is intended to give the victim (survivor) time and control over the release of their information. Further, it also empowers the survivor to make an informed decision about participating in the criminal process. Restricted Reports must be made to either the SARC, a Victim Advocate, Medical Personnel at your MTF ONLY.  The Restricted Reporting option is available to active duty military, dependents 18 and older, AF Reserve and ANG member in Title 10 status, AF civilian employees (appropriated and non-appropriated) ONLY.  If an individual makes a restricted report, they are eligible to receive the following services:

 

o    Medical care

o    Sexual Assault Forensic Exam (SAFE) Kit

o    SARC/VA

o    Special Victim’s Counsel (SVC)

o    Counseling 

 

Unrestricted Reporting triggers an investigation of the subject and both the victim and subject’s commanders are notified.  Unrestricted reports can be made to the SARC, a victim advocate, anyone in your chain of command, Security Forces, or Air Force Office of Special Investigation (OSI). If an individual makes an Unrestricted Report, they are eligible to receive the following services: 

 

o    Medical care

o    Sexual Assault Forensic Exam (SAFE) Kit

o    SARC/VA

o    Special Victim’s Counsel (SVC)

o    Counseling

o    Protective Orders (military/civilian)

o    Expedited Transfer (Active Duty only) 

 

* Note: Independent Reporting is an assault reported to Security Force/OSI by someone other than the victim.

SAPR Messages

"I am honored to serve with you again. And I look forward to working with you as we defend the United States. But, as I said before the Senate Armed Services committee, we cannot accomplish that mission if we also have to battle enemies within the ranks. I'm speaking here about the scourge of sexual assault.

I know this has been a focus for you and for the Department's leadership. I know you have worked this problem for many years. I tried to tackle it myself when I, too, commanded. We simply must admit the hard truth: we must do more. All of us."

Lloyd J. Austin III, Secretary of Defense
