Sexual Assault is a criminal act and will not be tolerated.  The Marine Corps' goal is to eliminate sexual assault within the Corps and to assist those Marines and sailors assigned to Marine Corps units affected by sexual assault. (MCO 1752.5A)

The 2nd MLG Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program provides 24/7 support and advocacy to all active duty Marines and sailors who are victims of sexual assault.

 

What is Sexual Assault?
The Department of Defense Definition

The term "sexual assault" is defined as intentional sexual contact, characterized by use of force, threats, intimidation, abuse of authority, or when the victim does not or cannot consent.  Sexual assault includes rape, forcible sodomy (oral or anal sex), and other unwanted sexual contact that is aggravated, abusive, or wrongful (to include unwanted and inappropriate sexual contact), or attempts to commit these acts.

"Consent" means words or overt actions indicating a freely given agreement to the sexual conduct at issue by a competent person.  An expression of lack of consent through words or conduct means there is no consent.  Lack of verbal or physical resistance or submission resulting from the accused's use of force, threat of force, or placing another person in fear does not constitute consent.  A current or previous dating relationship by itself or the manner of dress of the person involved with the accused in the sexual conduct at issue shall not constitute consent.

The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program addresses the prevention of sexual assault through awareness, education and training.  We also ensure that all Marines who are victims of sexual assault are "treated with dignity, sensitivity, and without prejudice" (MCO 1752.5B)

Seeking Support

The first priority of the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program is the care of Marines.  Many victims of sexual assault do not report the crime to anyone.  In order to ensure that victims get the medical treatment and support services that they need, Marines have two reporting options for sexual assault.

 

Restricted and Unrestricted Reporting
Restricted Reporting

If a Marine wants to receive medical treatment and support services without triggering the official investigation process, he or she can make a confidential report to any of the following individuals:

  • Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC)

  • Uniformed Victim Advocate (UVA)

  • Victim Advocate

  • Healthcare Provider or other medical personnel

  • Chaplain

When a Marine decides to make a restricted report, they receive medical care, including the collection of evidence if indicated, and counseling without notifying command or law enforcement officials. The SARC will notify the commanding officer that an assault occurred without providing identifying information about the victim.  A Marine who elects to make a restricted report can always change to an unrestricted report.

Unrestricted Reporting

The unrestricted reporting option allows a Marine to receive medical treatment, counseling, and an official investigation of the crime.  An unrestricted report of sexual assault can be made to the following individuals:

  • Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC)

  • Uniformed Victim Advocate (UVA)

  • Victim Advocate

  • Healthcare Provider or other medical personnel

  • Chaplain

  • Chain of Command

  • Law enforcement

  • Legal Personnel

Details of the incident will only be shared with personnel who have a legitimate need to know. This option allows the Marine Corps to potentially hold the offender accountable.

What are people saying about training?

  • This instruction was very informative and fun.  The instructors know a lot of information and presented themselves as caring and loving their jobs.  This set the tone for the rest of the class to look at this billet and training as positive.  The interaction between classmates/students and the instructors was awesome.  They broke the monotony of slide shows with encouraged greater learning.  Awesome class and even better instructors! I will continue to talk about how great/informative this class was and maintain the positivity of the SAPR Program.

  • I liked the training.  A lot of info for 3 days but spot on in what information we need.  Hopefully we won't need to use it but if we do we know where to go.

  • Wonderful few days.  Changed the way I look at this sort of incident and definitely changed the way I would have approached victims had I not been taught the course.

  • Overall really good course to have in my toolbox, was not excited to come but I'm grateful that I did now.
