About Us

Sexual assault is a criminal act and will not be tolerated. The Marine Corps’s goal is to eliminate sexual assaults within the Corps and to assist those Marines, Sailors, and military dependents over 18 affected by sexual assault. (MCO 1752.5B)

 

The MCB Camp Lejeune and the MCAS New River Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program provides 24/7 support and advocacy to all active duty Marines, Sailors, and military dependents who are victims of sexual assault.

 
What is Sexual Assault?

The term sexual assault is defined as intentional sexual contact, characterized by use of force, threats, intimidation, abuse of authority, or when the victim does not or cannot consent. Sexual assault includes rape, forcible sodomy (oral or anal sex), and other unwanted sexual contact that is aggravated, abusive, or wrongful (to include unwanted and inappropriate sexual contact), or attempts to commit these acts.


Consent means words or over acts indicating a freely given agreement to the sexual conduct at issue by a competent person. An expression of lack of consent through words or conduct means there is no consent.


Lack of verbal or physical resistance or submission resulting from the accused’s use of force, threat of force, or placing another person in fear does not constitute consent. A current or previous dating relationship by itself or the manner of dress of the person involved with the accused in the sexual conduct at issue shall not constitute consent.


Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program (SAPR)

Serves all Marines, Sailors, and military dependents over 18. The Program addresses the prevention of sexual assault through awareness, education, and training. We also ensure that all Marines who are victims of sexual assault are “treated with dignity, sensitivity, and without prejudice” (MCO 1752.5B).

 

Seeking Support

The first priority of the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program is the care for those that have been assaulted . Many victims of sexual assault do not report the crime to anyone. In order to ensure that victims get the medical treatment and support service s needed, the SAPR Program offers two reporting options.

Restricted Reporting

If a person that has been assaulted wants to receive medical treatment and support services without triggering an official investigation, he or she can make a confidential report to any of the following individuals:
- Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC)
- Uniformed Victim Advocate (UVA)
- Civilian Victim Advocate
- Healthcare Provider or Personnel
- Chaplain

- Victims Legal Counsel (Click here for brochure)

When a Marine decides to make a restricted report, they receive medical care and counseling without notifying command or law enforcement officials. The SARC will notify the Commanding Officer of the Installation that an assault occurred without providing identifying information about the victim. A Marine who elects to make a restricted report can always change to an unrestricted report.

Unrestricted Reporting

The unrestricted reporting option allows a Marine to receive medical treatment, counseling, and an official investigation of the crime. An unrestricted report of sexual assault can be made to the following individuals:
- Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC)
- Uniformed Victim Advocate (UVA)
- Civilian Victim Advocate
- Health care provider or personnel
- Chaplain
- Chain of Command
- Law enforcement
- Victims Legal Counsel (Click here for brochure)

Details of the incident will only be shared with personnel who have a legitimate need to know. This option allows the victim to request a Military Protective Order, Civilian Protective Order, or an Expedited Transfer and enables the Marine Corps to potentially hold the offender accountable.
