We are here to help! Assistance is just a phone call away!  Holloman 24/7 SAPR Response  Helpline: (575) 572-6789.

Services

SAPR services are available to Active Duty, Reserve, Guard members, dependents of service members (age 18 & above), and Holloman AF/NAF civilian employees.  SAPR provides support for adult sexual assault victims when the perpetrator is someone other than the victim’s spouse or same sex domestic partner. 

The Family Advocacy Program manages sexual assault allegations when the alleged offender is the partner in context of a spousal relationship, same sex domestic partnership, unmarried intimate partner relationship or military dependents who are 17 years of age and younger.

Reporting Options

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

Unrestricted Reporting:  activates victim support services and accountability responses that are essential to eliminating this crime.  Unrestricted Reports are immediately referred to Office of Special Investigations or the appropriate Military Criminal Investigation Organization and the victim’s command is notified.  SAPR unrestricted reports require a signed DD Form 2910.

Restricted Reporting:  Reporting option that allows sexual assault victims to confidentially disclose the assault to specified individuals (e.g., SARC, SAPR VA, or healthcare personnel) and receive medical treatment, including emergency care, counseling, and assignment of a SARC and SAPR VA, without triggering an official investigation.  SAPR restricted reports require a signed DD Form 2910.

Independent Reporting: is an assault reported by someone other than the victim.

Sexual Assault & Consent Defined

Sexual Assault is a crime, a violation of our Air Force Core Values, and the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).

Sexual Assault: intentional sexual contact characterized by use of force, threats, intimidation, or abuse of authority, or when the victim does not or cannot consent. The term includes a broad category of sexual offenses consisting of the following specific UCMJ offenses: rape, sexual assault, aggravated sexual contact, abusive sexual contact, forcible sodomy (forced oral or anal sex), or attempts to commit any of these acts.


Consent: Words or overt acts indicating a freely given agreement to the sexual conduct at issue by a competent person.  An expression of lack of consent through words or conduct means there is no consent.  Lack of verbal or physical resistance or submission resulting from the accused’s use of force, threat of force, or placing another person in fear does not constitute consent.  A current or previous dating relationship or the manner of dress of the person involved with the accused in the sexual conduct at issue shall not constitute consent.  There is no consent where the person is sleeping or incapacitated, such as due to age, alcohol or drugs, or mental incapacity.
