SAPR Victim Advocate (VA):
Responds immediately to victims of sexual assault; provides information and explains reporting options; accompanies victims during medical, investigative and legal procedures; helps victims through barriers; makes referrals for assistance.
Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC):
Ensures that VAs are trained and responsive care is properly coordinated and provided to victims of sexual assault; tracks sexual assault cases from the initial report through final disposition and resolution.
There are two reporting options:
Restricted Reporting - This reporting option allows you to confidentially disclose the crime to a Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC), SAPR Victim Advocates (VA), or healthcare personnel so that you can receive medical treatment and SAPR services. If you file a Restricted Report, your chain-of-command will not be notified, and there will not be an official investigation of the crime (so the person who attacked you will not be questioned or disciplined). If you want to pursue criminal charges, you must file an Unrestricted Report.
Unrestricted Reporting - This reporting option is for victims of sexual assault who desire an official investigation of the crime.
