Alternate Title: Appendix E: Safe Helpline Data, Department of Defense Annual Report on Sexual Assault in the Military: Fiscal Year 2019
From the Document: "The Department of Defense (DOD) Safe Helpline (SHL) provides crisis intervention, support, information, and referrals to resources for members of the DOD community who experience sexual assault. The service is confidential, anonymous, secure, and available at all hours of the day. Its availability ensures that all victims have a place to safely disclose sexual assault allegations, express concerns, and obtain information. As such, this resource provides victims a key source of support, particularly for those who might not otherwise reach out for help through face-to-face military channels. The Department leverages SHL as an accessible point-of-entry for the military community that facilitates sexual assault reporting to Sexual Assault Response Coordinators (SARCs) and Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Victim Advocates (SAPR VAs). This summary provides an overview of users served and services provided by SHL in Fiscal Year 2019 (FY19)."
