Sexual Assault Prevention & Response Program

24/7 Sexual Assault Hotline: (910) 750-5852

Help Is Always Available!

The Marine Corps has a zero tolerance policy on sexual assault.  It is a crime that has no place in the Corps.  The MCAS New River Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program (SAPRP) provides 24/7 crisis intervention and support services to all active duty Marines and Sailors who are victims of sexual assault.

Trained and professional victim advocates stand ready provide a helping hand through support, critical information, and referrals for services aboard the Air Station and in the local community.  Victim advocates assist survivors in determining what they wish to do, where to get help, and whether they choose to report the assault or not. They accompany survivors to medical visits, court proceedings, and other appointments as requested.

Sexual assault is defined as intentional sexual contact, characterized by use of force, physical threat or abuse of authority or when the victim does not or cannot consent.  Sexual assault includes rape, nonconsensual sodomy (oral or anal sex), indecent assault (unwanted, inappropriate sexual contact or fondling), or attempts to commit these acts.  Sexual assault can occur without regard to gender or spousal relationship or age of victim.

Consent shall not be deemed or construed to mean the failure by the victim to offer physical resistance.  Consent is not given when a person uses force, threat of force, coercion or when the victim is asleep, incapacitated, or unconscious.

Every victim has Reporting Options.


Reporting Options

Restricted Reporting Option

Restricted reporting allows a Marine who is a sexual assault victim to confidentially disclose details of his/her assault to four specifically identified personnel without triggering an investigative process.

To make a restricted report, the victim MUST ONLY notify one of the following personnel:  Uniform Victim Advocate (UVA), Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC), Civilian Victim Advocate (VA), or Healthcare Provider.

Once a restricted report is filed, a victim can choose at any time to change that report to an unrestricted report.

Unrestricted Reporting Option

A Marine who is sexually assaulted and desires official investigation of his/her allegation should make an unrestricted report.  The victim may use normal reporting channels (e.g., chain of command, law enforcement, etc).

Details regarding the assault will be limited to only those personnel who have a need to know, including the commander, NCIS, MPs, SARC, VA, chaplain, and healthcare provider.

Once an unrestricted report is filed, the victim cannot change their report to a restricted report.
