MISSION STATEMENT

The Langley Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program actively commits to the safety and well-being of all Airmen.  It is our goal to provide; quality victim care, improve incident reporting-restricted or unrestricted, to increase awareness and prevention through community education.

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 unwanted sexual contact characterized by use of force, physical threat, abuse of power, or when the victim does not or cannot consent. Examples: inappropriate touching, groping, or fondling for sexual gratification, as well as penetration, oral stimulation, sodomy, or any attempt to do these things.

Consent can be obtained verbally or through body language or gestures as long as they are unambiguous and ongoing. It is everyone's responsibility to be 100% certain that they have consent. A person cannot consent if they are incapacitated, for example by alcohol, drugs, or sleep deprivation. The lack of physical resistance or a verbal "no" does not constitute consent.


Reporting Options

The Air Force has instituted new avenues for reporting 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: Confidential reporting that allows a service member, adult dependent, or a defense civilian to report a sexual assault and seek support services such as mental health, victim advocacy, and legal representation. Office of Special Investigations (OSI) and chain of command will NOT be notified.

Unrestricted: Reporting option for service members, adult dependents, and defense civilians to report a sexual assault and seek accountability for the reported offender. An investigation will be initiated and "need to know" individuals in the chain of command will be notified. Respect for privacy remains a priority with this option, as well.

Independent: Reporting option for someone other than a victim, such as a friend, co-worker, or mandatory reporter, to report a sexual assault.

Contact Information

The Langley Air Force Base Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) office provides a 24-hour, seven-day a week response capability. Talking to SAPR staff is a smart first step that allows a victim to preserve their reporting options and gain valuable information to guide them through their decision making.

Helping a victim

As a Friend:

Start by believing, not blaming


· Ensure physical safety; determine if emergency medical care is needed


· If recent incident, encourage him/her not to shower, eat, or dispose of clothing


· Encourage him/her to contact the SAPR hotline for a timely information and the option to report

As a Supervisor:

· You are a mandatory reporter of incidents affecting a subordinate


· Contact SARC for assistance with your reporting responsibilities


· Collect only basic information


· It is your Commander's responsibility to determine who has "need to know," so do not further disseminate without guidance


· In coordination with, and as directed by, your commander, monitor the well-being of the victim
