Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program

USFK SAPR Program Goal

Sexual assaults endanger our own, violate our professional culture and core values, erode readiness and team cohesion, and violate the sacred trust and faith of those who serve and whom we serve.  The goal of the USFK Sexual Assault, Prevention and Response Program is to eliminate incidents of sexual assault through improved prevention, accountability and victim advocacy and services at all levels in order to preserve a culture of trust and respect consistent with the Profession of Arms and our core values, and to maintain the health, discipline, and readiness of the Joint Force.

USFK SAPR Goals

  • Demonstrate leaderships commitment to sexual assault prevention and response as one of our most vital missions
  • Emphasize joint force, service and command readiness
  • Enhance leader and Service member awareness and education regarding our obligation to prevent, identify and respond to the environmental risks, predatory and high-risk behaviors and personal vulnerabilities associated with the crime of sexual assault
  • Increase unity of effort across all Services through a joint perspective and consistent application of prevention, intervention and response
  • Reaffirm confidence and trust in keeping faith with our Service members and families
