Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Sexual Assault Prevention and Response: 
Sexual Assault Response Coordinators (SARCs) and Victim Advocates are available at major DoD installations to assist victims (survivors) of sexual assault. The Wright-Patterson Air Force Base SARC serves as the single point of contact for integrating and coordinating sexual assault victim (survivor) care 24/7, 365 days a year. The SARC Office is also responsible for providing Sexual Assault Prevention training throughout the installation.

Help is just a phone call away: If you have been sexually assaulted, please call the Wright-Patterson 24/7 SARC Response Helpline at 937-257-SARC (7272). Additionally, DOD has set up a 24-hour hotline at 1-800-342-9647 for geographically separated military personnel as well. Military members who access the DOD hotline will be referred to the nearest Sexual Assault Response Coordinator's office for assistance. You may also e-mail the Wright-Patterson SARC at 88ABW.CVK@wpafb.af.mil.

tabSexual Assault Defined and Program Assistance 
Sexual Assault is criminal conduct that falls well short of the standards America expects of its men and women in uniform and is a violation of our Air Force Core Values.

Sexual Assault is defined as intentional sexual conduct, characterized by use of force, physical threat or abuse of authority or when the victim does not or cannot consent. Sexual assault includes rape, nonconsensual sodomy (oral or anal sex), indecent assault (unwanted, inappropriate sexual contact or fondling), or attempts to commit these acts. Sexual assault can occur without regard to gender or spousal relationship or age of victim.

Consent shall not be deemed or construed to mean the failure by the victim to offer physical resistance. Consent is not given when a person uses force, threat of force, coercion or when the victim is asleep, incapacitated, or unconscious.
