Anti-Harassment and Hate Incident Program and Procedures



SAPRR CG Portal Page (CAC required)

The mission of the Coast Guard’s Sexual Assault Prevention, Response, and Recovery (SAPRR) Program is to eliminate sexual assault from our Service. The Coast Guard will ensure that if it does occur, we will provide immediate and compassionate victim support; a responsive and intimidation-free reporting environment inhospitable to retaliation; a timely, professional investigation; holistic care and recovery for victims; and accountability for those who commit this crime.

SAPRR resources for commanding officers and officers in charge

Note: The Commander's Checklist is intended to serve as a baseline for the commander's response to adult sexual assault victim(s), alleged offender(s), and unit in the event of an Unrestricted Report of sexual assault. The checklist may be expanded to meet CG-specific requirements and procedures. These checklist items do not represent all of the responsibilities assigned to commanders for the entire Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) program, and it is important for commanders to take time prior to an incident to become familiar with SAPR policies and CG SARC personnel.
