Sexual Assault: Intentional sexual contact characterized by use of force, threats, intimidation, or abuse of authority or when the victim does not or cannot consent. Sexual assault includes rape, forcible sodomy (oral or anal sex), and other unwanted sexual contact that is aggravated, abusive, or wrongful (including unwanted and inappropriate sexual contact), or attempts to commit these acts.
Sexual Harassment: Sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination that involves unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature between the same or opposite genders.

This definition applies when:

• Submission to, or rejection of, such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of a person’s job, pay, career, or
• Submission to, or rejection of, such conduct by a person is used as a basis for career or employment decisions affecting that person, or
• Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment.

Civilians

DoD civilian employees and their family dependents and DoD contractors are only eligible for “Unrestricted Reporting” and for limited emergency care medical services at an MTF, unless that individual is otherwise eligible as a Service member or TRICARE beneficiary of the military health system to receive treatment in an MTF at no cost to them.

US DoD Sexual Assault Prevention and Response

In the event of sexual harassment: In order to stop sexual harassment, the aggrieved is encouraged to report the inappropriate behavior to your chain of command through your SHARP representative. Once you have spoken with your SHARP representative it is strictly your choice to choose Informal or Formal reporting option. If you are a civilian, report the behavior immediately to your supervisor, or to the Equal Employment Opportunity office.
If the behavior persists, file a formal sexual harassment complaint through your brigade SHARP representative. If you are a civilian, report the incident to your Equal Employment Opportunity office.
The Army provides informal and formal complaint process options for complainants. The SHARP Program is responsible for the Army’s sexual harassment prevention efforts. The Army Equal Employment Opportunity Office provides assistance to Civilian employee complainants and the Equal Opportunity Program is responsible for military sexual harassment complaints.
In the event of sexual assault:
1. Get to a safe place. If you are in need of urgent medical attention, call 911. If you are not injured, you still need medical assistance to protect your health. Moncrief Army Community Hospital on Fort. Jackson can offer you immediate health care. Any medical facility within the surrounding area will assist you when reporting to the Emergency Department.
2. Contact your local SHARP representative, or call the Fort Jackson Sexual Assault Hotline at 803-543-3085.
3. To protect evidence, do not shower, brush your teeth, put on make-up, eat, or drink, or change clothes until advised to do so. You or your SHARP representative may report the crime to Army or local law enforcement.
Restricted sexual assault report:
We value your privacy. Restricted reporting offers Soldiers and Family members (except underage children) the option to report a sexual assault without having to notify law enforcement and protecting the identity of the victim.
This option is only available if you report the incident to your victim advocate, medical care facility, or sexual assault response coordinator (SARC).
Unrestricted sexual assault report:
Unrestricted Reporting is the military’s preferred reporting method because it provides the widest latitude to help and protect victims of sexual assault. Through the unrestricted option, details of the incident are kept confidential and are only disclosed on a need to know basis. An unrestricted report triggers an investigation so that offenders may be held accountable and the safety of the victim is ensured.
Entitlements (independent of the reporting option)
• Medical care
• Counseling
• Pastoral care upon request
• Sexual assault forensic examination
Unrestricted reporting victims are also entitled to:
• Military protection order
• Legal advice
• Request transfer from their unit
• Law enforcement investigation into the incident
