Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program
The North Dakota National Guard is committed to eliminating incidents of sexual assault within the military through a comprehensive policy and program that focuses on awareness, prevention, education, and victim advocacy for service members and their adult dependents.
Types of Reporting:
Unrestricted Reporting allows a victim who desires medical treatment, counseling and advocacy services, and an official investigation of the sexual assault, to use current reporting channels (for example, the chain of command or law enforcement) or to report the incident to a Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC), Victim Advocate (VA), or to healthcare personnel.
Details of the sexual assault are limited to personnel with a legitimate need to know
Restricted Reporting allows Soldier, or his/her family member (dependents) 18 years of age or older and who are eligible for treatment in the military healthcare system (DoDI 6492.02, paragraph 2a (3) has the additional limit), who is a sexual assault victim to confidentially disclose details of his/her sexual assault to specifically identified personnel without triggering an investigative process. Restricted Reporting also allows a victim medical treatment, counseling, and the right to consult with a Special Victim Counsel, and advocacy services. In addition, sexual assault can be reported to the Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC), a Victim Advocate (VA), or to healthcare personnel.
