Promoting Excellence in Prevention Award

To support the Services in their prevention efforts, the DoD uses the Promoting Excellence in Prevention Award to recognize a group or an individual (military or civilian) from each Military Service/component who contributed or developed an idea, concept, methodology, or approach to positively impact the sexual assault prevention efforts on an installation, deployed environment, or in a reserve component. This award recognizes individuals or groups whose work has been particularly noteworthy and demonstrates outstanding service in support of Service members. Policies, programs, or practices at any level of the organization are eligible activities.

Award recipients and their contributions are published each year to facilitate the sharing of information and enhance opportunities to further SAPRO’s mission to promote military readiness by eliminating sexual assault and ensuring excellence in prevention efforts.
