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.
TO REPORT A SEXUAL ASSAULT CALL THE MCAS NEW RIVER SEXUAL ASSAULT HOTLINE:
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.
