Restricted Reporting allows you to confidentially disclose the assault to a Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC), SAPR Victim Advocate (VA), or health care personnel so that you can receive medical treatment, mental health support, and SAPR services.
If you file a Restricted Report, your chain of command and the perpetrator will not be notified, and there will not be an official investigation of the crime. You will also not be able to receive additional protective measures, like Military Protective Orders or request an Expedited Transfer, but you will have a Safety Assessment.
You may also speak confidentially with a Special Victim’s Counsel/Victim’s Legal Counsel, legal assistance attorney or chaplain about the sexual assault without triggering a report, command notification or an investigation. However, none of these individuals can take an official report of sexual assault.
