Restricted Report Option: Did you know?

If you weren’t paying attention to the news in May you probably didn’t know that the DoD released its annual report on sexual assault in the military. In the Air Force, 1,047 sexual assault reports were documented in FY13. Of the 1,047 reports, 488 were restricted reports however, 76 of those converted from restricted to unrestricted in FY13.

The restricted report option is for victims of sexual assault who wish to confidentially disclose the crime to specifically identified individuals and receive medical treatment and services without triggering the official investigative process. Service members who are sexually assaulted and desire restricted reporting under this policy must report the assault to a Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC), Sexual Assault Victim Advocate (SAPR VA), Volunteer Victim Advocate (VA) or healthcare personnel. However, members who have made a restricted report have the option to go unrestricted if they choose to do so at a later date. What do you think about this policy?
