Sexual Assault Prevention & Response (SAPR)

The Department of Defense’s sexual assault policy is that this crime has no place in the United States Armed Forces. Our men and women serving throughout the world deserve nothing less. Their leaders, both military and civilian, are committed to maintaining a workplace environment that rejects sexual assault and reinforces a culture of prevention, response and accountability. Together we can achieve a culture free of sexual assault.
