BACKGROUND: Sexual assault is devastating to individual Sailors, Marines, and Civilians as well as the mission readiness and effectiveness of the DON. The Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) established DON SAPRO in September 2009. The objective of the office is to cultivate a DON culture of gender respect where sexual assault is completely eliminated and never tolerated. Sexual assault is unacceptable.
SECNAV is committed to combating sexual assault Department-wide through programs that focus on reducing the incidence of sexual assaults, providing effective and compassionate support for victims of sexual assault, and holding the perpetrators of sexual assault accountable at the appropriate forum consistent with the nature of the offense. DON SAPRO serves as the Secretary's direct source of subject matter expertise, primary advisor, and representative for matters throughout the Department related to SAPR.
H.R. 1540: National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012 was signed into law on Dec 31, 2011 and requires that all Department of Defense personnel, to include Civilian employees, be trained annually in sexual assault prevention and response policies and procedures.
COURSE DETAILS: The training is approximately one-hour long and consists of 30 minutes of video and 30 minutes of guided group discussion that is targeted specifically to applicable audiences. The video includes documentary interviews of leaders and subject matter experts, and three dramatic (fictional) scenarios. The scenarios are short mini-movies that portray different sexual assaults and missed opportunities for bystander intervention specifically relevant to both military personnel and Civilian employees.
The training covers the following information: Definition of sexual assault; Explanation that sexual assault is a criminal offense; Explanation of consent; Difference between sexual assault and sexual harassment; Reporting options for service members and Civilian employees, including advantages and limitations of each option; Resources for service members and Civilian employees; Prevention strategies, including bystander intervention; and Impact of sexual assault on victims, commands and mission accomplishment.
At the conclusion of the course, all participants will be able to: Communicate the negative impact that sexual assault has on the victim, the unit/workplace, and the Department of the Navy; Explain the difference between sexual assault and sexual harassment; State the reporting option(s) available to active duty service members and Civilians employees; and Name multiple confidential victim resources.
MANDATORY TRAINING: Mandatory training is defined by SECNAV Instruction 12410.25 as training mandated by executive order, Federal statute, regulation or at the direction of the Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) and must be recorded in the Defense Civilian Personnel Data System (DCPDS). Required training is training that your Command has specifically said you must complete but is not mandated.
