Reporting Options

Restricted Report

A restricted report allows a Marine or dependent who is a sexual assault victim to confidentially disclose the sexual assault to specific personnel without triggering an investigation.

To make a restricted report, the victim can notify one of the following personnel: uniformed or civilian SAPR Victim Advocate (SAPR VA), Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC), or Healthcare Provider.

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

Unrestricted Report

A Marine or dependent who is sexually assaulted and desires an official investigation of the sexual assault can make an unrestricted report to a uniformed or civilian SAPR VA, SARC, or Healthcare Provider.  The Marine or dependent can also speak directly to their chain of command or to law enforcement to make the report.  

It is recommended to speak to a SAPR VA or SARC first, regardless of reporting options.

With an unrestricted report, details regarding the assault will be limited to only those personnel who have a need to know, including the commander, NCIS, PMO, SARC, VA, chaplain, and healthcare provider.

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