DoD Program Changes to the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program:

Restricted Reporting Option -gives a victim time and opportunity to get information about available services and fully explore his or her rights, so he or she can make an informed decision without the pressure of an investigation or any legal process. Once a victim becomes fully informed about the services available they can choose to convert the restricted report to an unrestricted report. Access to legal counsel is also avaiable.

Restricted Reporting is available for:

- Active Duty Military and their dependents (spouses and children 18 years old and up)

- Coast Guard members

- Reservists performing federal duty

- National Guard

Unrestricted Reporting Option - Any report of a sexual assault made through normal reporting channels, including the victim's chain of command, law enforcement, and the AFOSI or other criminal investigative service is considered an unrestricted report.Unrestricted Reporting is available for: Access to legal counsel is also avaiable.


- Active Duty Military and their dependents (spouses and children children 18 years old and up)

- Retired military members

- Civilians

- Contractors

Document Retention in cases of restricted and unrestricted reports of sexual assault. Effective 16 Dec 2011, the sexual assault investigative reports for unrestricted reports will be retained for 50 years from the date the sexual assault investigation was closed. For restricted reports a separate record retention system designed to honor and respect the service member's desire for confidentiality shall be used. If a sexual assault forensic exam is performed, that information will be retained for 5 years. The SARC will also retain the DD Form 2910, the form used to annotate the restricted reporting option. This allows for additional time for the victim to come forward and convert the restricted report to an unrestricted report. If you would like additional information on this process or have questions, please contact your SAPR Office at 575-572-6789

Rule 514. Victim Advocate - victim privilege. Effective December 2011, a victim has a privilege to refuse to disclose and to prevent any other person from disclosing a confidential communication made between the victim and a victim advocate, in a case arising under the UCMJ. If you would like additional information on this process or have questions, please contact your SAPR Office at 575-572-6789
