Unrestricted Reporting: This reporting option triggers an investigation, command notification, and allows a person who has been sexually assaulted to access medical treatment and counseling. When a sexual assault is reported through Unrestricted Reporting, a SARC shall be notified, respond or direct a SAPR VA to respond, assign a SAPR VA, and offer the victim healthcare treatment and a Sexual Assault Forensic Exam (SAFE).
Restricted Reporting:This reporting option does NOT trigger an investigation. The command is notified that “an alleged sexual assault” occurred, but is not given the victim’s name or other personally identifying information. Restricted Reporting allows Service members to confidentially disclose the assault to specified individuals (SARC, SAPR VA) and receive the advocacy from a SARC and SAPR VA. When a sexual assault is reported through Restricted Reporting, a SARC shall be notified, respond or direct a SAPR VA to respond, assign a SAPR VA. The Restricted Reporting option is only available to Service members. If a victim elects this reporting option, a victim may change from Restricted Report to an Unrestricted Report.
In the course of otherwise privileged communications with a chaplain or legal assistance attorney, a victim may indicate that he or she wishes to file a Restricted Report. If this occurs, a chaplain and legal assistance attorney shall facilitate contact with a SARC or SAPR VA to ensure that a victim is offered SAPR services. A chaplain or legal assistance attorney cannot accept a Restricted Report
