DoD SAPRO serves as a leader in collecting data and developing reports that address the crime of sexual assault within the military. The data provided in the reports serves as the foundation and catalyst for future sexual assault prevention, training, victim care and accountability goals.

In addition to DoD reports, other government agencies and independent organizations also develop reports that provide important information and data on sexual assault in the military.

Retaliation Strategy & Plan

The DoD Retaliation Prevention and Response Strategy: Regarding Sexual Assault and Harassment Reports outlined five issue areas that identified how the Department and the Military Services will prevent and respond to retaliation related to reports of sexual assault or complaints of sexual harassment.

The Department released the accompanying DoD Retaliation Prevention and Response Implementation Plan, which details how DoD and the Military Services, to include the National Guard Bureau (NGB), will execute tasks in the identified issue areas and institutionalize a comprehensive and consistent approach to retaliation prevention and response across the Department related to reports of sexual assault and complaints of sexual harassment. Moving forward, the Military Services will align their Service retaliation prevention and response strategic policies and plans with the RPRS and this implementation plan.

Sexual assault destroys unit cohesion and threatens the readiness of our troops by eroding bonds of trust that make our military strong and effective. The Department released the DoD Plan to Prevent and Respond to Sexual Assault of Military Men to ensure its existing programs and services meet the needs of all Service members.
