Unrestricted Reporting– allows a sexual assault victim to disclose the details of his or her assault and receive medical treatment and counseling; Law enforcement will be notified. Unrestricted reporting is the same reporting option for any other crime reported in the military. The commander and first sergeant are notified to ensure the well-being of the service member and of a probable investigation. The SAPR office is still involved and provides all services requested. These services will continue through any legal processes.
Restricted Reporting– allows a sexual assault victim to confidentially disclose the details of his or her assault and receive medical treatment and counseling; no investigation is initiated and the victim's command is not notified. A restricted report is between the survivor and the SARC, and all of the services offered by the SAPR Office are available.
Independent Reporting is an assault reported by someone other than the victim.

If you have been sexually assaulted or think you may have been:
Go to a safe location.
Contact your local Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC), or military healthcare personnel. You may also contact your chain of command or law enforcement (military or civilian), however if you do, an investigation will occur and you will not have the option of making a Restricted Report.
Seek medical care as soon as possible. Even if you do not have any visible physical injuries, you may be at risk of becoming pregnant or acquiring a sexually transmitted disease.
Preserve all evidence of the assault. Do not bathe, wash your hands or brush your teeth. Do not clean or straighten up the crime scene.
As part of a larger Department of Defense (DoD) program to combat sexual assault, the JAG Corps has worked to find ways to support the goals of the DoD in combating sexual assault. The purpose of the SVC Program is to provide advice, provide advocacy, and empower victims through independent legal representation.
