SEXUAL ASSAULT PREVENTION & RESPONSE (SAPR) Mission

The mission of the Marine Corps Headquarters Battalion SAPR program is to encourage a culture of awareness,  prevention of sexual assault, and to ensure all personnel within HQ Bn know how to respond and report sexual assaults.

Commander's Intent

To provide appropriate care for victims of a sexual assault; to ensure accountability of offenders; to eliminate behaviors which encourages, validates, or enables sexual assault; to develop programs that reduce the negative effect sexual assault has on combat readiness of Marines, Sailors, and units to which they belong; and to encourage our Marines to step-up and take a stand to prevent sexual assaults by taking the appropriate bystander action to intervene when witnessing situations or behaviors that may result in sexual misconduct or sexual assault.

Reporting Options

Service members and their adult military dependents have two reporting options - Restricted Reporting and Unrestricted Reporting. Under Unrestricted Reporting, both the command and law enforcement are notified. With Restricted (Confidential) Reporting, the adult sexual assault victim can access healthcare, advocacy services, and legal services without the notification to command or law enforcement.
Upon notification of a reported sexual assault, the SARC will immediately assign a SAPR VA and inform the victim of their right to speak to a Victims' Legal Counsel (VLC). At the victim's discretion or request, the healthcare personnel shall conduct a sexual assault forensic examination (SAFE), 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.
