Promoting respect, preserving dignity

The F.E. Warren Sexual Assault and Response Coordinator serves as the single point of contact for integrating and coordinating sexual assault victim (survivor) care 24/7, 365 days a year. The SARC office is also responsible for providing sexual assault prevention training throughout the installation, risk reduction and prevention activities.

Help is just a phone call away. If you have been sexually assaulted or have any questions about sexual assault, please call the base's 24/7 SARC Response Helpline at (307)773-7272 (SARC).

Additionally, the DoD has a 24-hour hotline at 1-800-342-9647 for geographically separated military personnel. Military members who access the DoD hotline will be referred to the nearest Sexual Assault Response Coordinator's office for assistance.

Assault Defined

Sexual assault is criminal conduct that falls well short of the standards America expects of its men and women in uniform and is a violation of our Air Force Core Values.

Sexual assault is defined as intentional sexual conduct characterized by the use of force, physical threat, or abuse of authority or when the victim does not or cannot consent. Sexual assault includes rape, nonconsensual sodomy (oral or anal sex), indecent assault (unwanted, inappropriate sexual contact or fondling), or attempts to commit these acts. Sexual assault can occur without regard to gender spousal relationship or the age of the victim.

Consent shall not be deemed or construed to mean the failure by the victim to offer physical resistance. Consent is not given when a person uses force, threat of force, coercion, or when the victim is asleep, incapacitated, or unconscious.

Getting Assistance

If you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted and you need assistance, please follow these guidelines:

  • Immediately report any assault; however, evidence may still be collected up to 5 days after the incident.
  • Never hesitate to get help.
  • It is recommended that you do not change clothes, but if you feel like changing clothes, you must bring soiled clothing in a paper bag- not plastic.
  • Do not eat or drink anything.
  • Do not shower, brush your teeth, or use mouthwash.
  • Do not take or apply any medication to any injuries.
  • Do not use the bathroom, but bring urine for testing in a plastic or glass container if you must.
  • Do not disturb or clean up the crime scene.

You don't have to be alone!

  1. The assault was NOT your fault. You did not cause it to happen.
  2. People are here to help. We are committed to supporting you and your family members most sensitively and privately as possible.
  3. There is no "right way" in dealing with sexual assault. It is okay to be angry, and standing up for yourself as you are ready is essential. Let the SARC/victim advocate put you in touch with all the available resources and assistance.
  4. Take care of yourself and ask for what you need. Remember, before washing or cleaning up, seek medical attention.

Reporting Options

Restricted Reporting Option - gives a victim time and opportunity to get information about available services and fully explore their rights so they can make an informed decision without the pressure of an investigation or any legal process. Once a victim becomes fully informed about the services available, they can choose to convert the restricted report to an unrestricted report. Access to legal counsel is also available.

Restricted Reporting is available for active duty military and their dependents (spouses and children 18 years old and up), Department of Defense civilians, and Guard and Reserve.

Unrestricted Reporting Option - Any report of a sexual assault made through normal reporting channels, including the victim's chain of command, law enforcement, and the AFOSI or other criminal investigative service, is considered an unrestricted report. Details of the allegation will be provided only to personnel with a legitimate need to know. Access to legal counsel is also available.

Unrestricted reporting is available for active duty military and their dependents (spouses and children 18 years old and up), Department of Defense civilians, and Guard and Reserve.

Victim Advocate Program

Air Force victim advocates provide essential support, liaison services, and care to a sexual assault victim.

Victim advocates are DoD civilian employees selected by the SARC who have completed a 40-hour training course.

Responsibilities include:

  • We provide crisis intervention, referral, and ongoing non-clinical support.
  • We provide information on available options and resources to assist the victim in making informed decisions about the case.
  • Services will continue until the victim states that support is no longer needed.
  • Victim advocates do not provide counseling or other professional services to a victim.
  • May be present with the victim, at the victim's request, during investigative interviews, legal proceedings, and medical examinations.

Special Victims' Counsel Program

Provide Victims with independent, attorney-client privileged representation throughout the investigation and prosecution processes.

SVCS' role may include

  • Advocacy to military justice actors, including commanders and convening authorities.
  • Attending interviews and investigators, trial counsel, and counsel
  • Providing in-court representation as permitted by the military judges
  • Advocacy to other AF and DoD agencies as appropriate
  • Advocacy to civilian prosecutors and agencies

Categories of victims of sexual assault are eligible for SVC

  • Air Force members (AD/ARC in status at the time of offense); restricted and unrestricted report
  • Adult Dependents of AF members if perpetrator is AF member; restricted and unrestricted report
  • Other Service members and adult dependents if the perpetrator is an AF member; unrestricted report
  • Other categories eligible as applicable if the perpetrator is an AF member: unrestricted report
  • BMT and Technical Training students in entry-level status involved in an unprofessional relationship with physical contact of a sexual nature with faculty/ staff

SVCs are expected to increase victim empowerment, ability to be heard, and willingness to cooperate in the military justice system by enhancing their understanding of the process.

SVC can be requested locally through F.E. Warren's Judge Advocate Office at 307-773-2256 or the Sexual Assault Response Coordinator at 307-773-3483
