Reporting Options

The Air Force has instituted avenues for reporting sexual assault in the form of Restricted and Unrestricted Reporting.

Restricted Reporting allows sexual assault victims to confidentially disclose the assault to specified individuals (i.e., SARC, SAPR VA, Chaplains or healthcare personnel), and receive medical treatment, including emergency care, counseling, and assignment of a SARC and SAPR VA, without triggering an investigation. It is intended to give the victim (survivor) time and control over the release of their information. Further, it also empowers the survivor to make an informed decision about participating in the criminal process.
Restricted Reporting is available for:
- All Service members and their Dependents over the age of 18
Unrestricted Reporting is any report of sexual assault made through normal reporting channels (for example: reports to chain of command, security forces, and/or Air Force Office of Investigation). This reporting option triggers an investigation, command notification, and allows a person who has been sexually assaulted to access medical treatment and counseling.
Unrestricted Reporting is available for:
- All Service members and their Dependents over the age of 18
- DoD Civilians and their Dependents over the age of 18 (MTF access and/or serving in an OS location)
- Contractors (if supporting in a contingency location outside the continental United States)
Independent Reporting is an assault reported by someone other than the victim.

152nd Airlift SAPR

Sexual assault directly impacts our mission readiness as we must have implicit trust in one another. Sexual assault also exacts an extraordinary toll on victims and their families. We go into combat together and there can be no hesitation in that trust between our brothers and sisters in arms. Those who commit sexual assault break down this trust and we have no place for that in our service.

Commanders at all levels have direct responsibility for the culture and accountability within their units; commanders create the climate of their unit and ensure good order and discipline for the Airmen who have been entrusted to them.

The foundation of the Air Force is our core values of Integrity, Service and Excellence. We will build on that foundation by reinforcing and fostering a culture of dignity and respect; an environment that identifies perpetrators and holds them accountable; and an environment where victims feel empowered to come forward to report this crime.

An extremely small percentage of Airmen commit this crime, but the entire Air Force can, and must, be part of the solution by improving early intervention, accountability and victim support.

One of the greatest challenges will be helping Airmen of all ranks to assess their own attitudes toward the offense of sexual assault and understand how to improve their decision-making in interacting with fellow Airmen.

Denim Day Story

The Meaning Behind Denim Day

In Rome in 1992, a 45-year-old driving instructor allegedly raped an 18-year-old student during a lesson.  While the alleged rapist was convicted and sentenced, the Italian Supreme Court overturned the conviction in 1998 because the victim wore tight jeans. It was argued that she must have helped her attacker remove her jeans, thus making the act consensual.

The ruling sparked widespread protest. The day after the decision, women in the Italian Parliament protested by wearing jeans.  As a sign of support, the California Senate and Assembly followed suit. In time, Denim Day became an annual event.  National Denim Day was supported by the 152 AW on 26 April 2017.  Airmen were authorized by the TAG to wear denim, showing the TAG and Wing support for this very important event.

The Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC) for the 152 AW offers victim advocacy and services.  The SARC advocates for the client and only the client.  The SARC is here to provide service referrals and reporting options.  The client chooses the reporting option, if they choose to report, reporting is not required to obtain services.

There are two reporting options for Airmen, unrestricted (begins an investigation) and restricted (confidential, no investigation).  Either option is available to all Airmen of the 152 AW.  The client will be offered services, whether they choose to report or not.  The SARC is here to support the mission of the 152 AW through awareness and education through sexual assault prevention and response.  Thank you for all that you do High Rollers!
