SAPR Toolkit for Commanders and SARCs

Commanders and Sexual Assault Response Coordinators (SARCs) are responsible for the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) program at their military installation or organization. They are responsible for creating an environment that promotes decreased prevalence, increased reporting of sexual assault and harassment, and providing victims optimal care.

DoD SAPRO has gathered a variety of resources and tools to assist military leaders in establishing climates that are not conducive to sexual assault and harassment, and instilling confidence in SAPR services.

When you receive an Unrestricted report:

Commander's Checklist 8-Day Incident Report Forms
The Commander’s Checklist serves as a baseline for the response to adult sexual assault victims, suspects, and their unit in the event of an Unrestricted Report of sexual assault. An incident report must be submitted in writing within 8 days to your General/Flag Officer after an Unrestricted Report of sexual assault has been made. Refer to this Directive-type Memorandum for more information. These forms help commanders, SARCs, and SAPR Victim Advocates (VAs) execute their missions.

Military Protective Order (MPO) DD Form 2873 Sample MOU DoD Instruction 6310.09 -- Health Care Management for Patients Associated with a Sexual Assault
This order informs the Service member and the protected person that the commanding officer is issuing an order to the member prohibiting contact or communication with the protected person or members of the protected person's family or household. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is used between organizations to represent an understanding to share specified information within a given timeframe.
