Sexual Assault Prevention & Response

The U.S. Navy's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) program is designed to meet the needs of victims. Services are available to victims regardless of whether the victim knows the offender, and regardless of where and when the assault took place.

Sexual assaults encompass a broad range of intentional sexual contacts that are unwelcome and without consent. The most serious sexual assaults, include rape, sodomy, and forced forms of sex. No form of sexual assault is ever acceptable in the Department of the Navy, and all are crimes. Close coordination with law enforcement and legal is essential for successful prosecutions. Active intervention is one key element of sexual assault prevention. It emphasizes the responsibility of all Sailors and Marines to protect each other and to actively intervene in circumstances that may lead up to sexual assault.

Our Mission:  Prevent and respond to sexual assault, eliminating it from our ranks through a balance of focused education, comprehensive response, compassionate advocacy, and just adjudication in order to promote professionalism, respect, and trust, while preserving Navy mission readiness.

Our Vision: Promote and foster a culturally aware and informed Navy respectful of all, intolerant of sexual assault, and supported by a synergistic program of prevention, advocacy, and accountability.
