SAPR Policy Toolkit for Command Teams

Command Teams are responsible for the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) program at their military installation or organization. They are responsible for creating an environment that promotes decreased prevalence, increased reporting of sexual assault and harassment, and providing victims optimal care.

DoD SAPRO has gathered a variety of resources and tools to assist military leaders in establishing climates that are not conducive to sexual assault and harassment, and instilling confidence in SAPR services.

When you receive an Unrestricted report:

Commander's Checklist Sexual Assault Incident Response Oversight (SAIRO) SAPR Policy Toolkit for SARCs
The Commander’s Checklist serves as a baseline for the response during the first 30 days for adult sexual assault victims, alleged offenders, and their unit in the event of an Unrestricted Report of sexual assault. It also addresses the responsibilities, including required notifications, for allegations of retaliation. An incident report must be submitted in writing within 8 days to your General/Flag Officer after an Unrestricted Report of sexual assault has been made. Refer to this Directive-type Memorandum for more information. Your organization’s SARC is the backbone of your SAPR program. Learn more about their role and the resources available to them.
