Navy Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program

Our Mission

Prevent and respond to sexual assault, eliminating it from our ranks through a balance of focused education, comprehensive response, compassionate advocacy, and just adjudication in order to promote professionalism, respect, and trust, while preserving Navy mission readiness.

Our Vision

Promote and foster a culturally aware and informed Navy respectful of all, intolerant of sexual assault, and supported by a synergistic program of prevention, advocacy, and accountability.

Live Our Values: Step Up to Stop Sexual Assault 

Reducing the threat of sexual violence from within our ranks continues to be an All Hands effort - focused on our collective effort to provide safe environments for our Sailors at all levels. 

SAPR Fleet-Wide Training

As part of the Navy’s continuing effort to prevent sexual assaults and promote essential culture changes within the force, a SAPR Task Force (SAPR TF) was established under the command of the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Manpower, Personnel, Training and Education (N1) to facilitate delivery of targeted sexual assault prevention training to all active and reserve personnel. 

This training aligns with the “Strategic Direction to the Joint Force on Sexual Assault Prevention and Response” from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, supports the Secretary of Defense’s Initiatives to Combat Sexual Assault in the Military and is part of the Secretary of the Navy’s 21st Century Sailor and Marine initiative.

SAPR Leadership (SAPR-L) (E7 and above), SAPR Fleet (SAPR-F) (E6 and below), and SAPR-GMTK (E-7 and above) training will provide some of the critical tools to reduce sexual assault and promote a culture of respect and professionalism in our force, where each sailor is motivated to intervene and stop this crime.  Specific information and resources on SAPR-L , SAPR-F, and SAPR-GMTK training are available on the SAPR Training website. 

To anonymously report a crime, go to the NCIS Homepage or submit a tip via the NCIS Tip Submit smartphone application.

To report a sexual assault contact your local Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC), your local SAPR Victim Advocate (VA) or call, text, or click the DoD Safe Helpline.

The Navy's SAPR Program falls under the purview of the 21st Century Sailor Office (OPNAV N17) for information contact us at:
