Alternate Title: Enclosure 3: Department of the Air Force, Department of Defense Annual Report on Sexual Assault in the Military: Fiscal Year 2019
From the Executive Summary: "The Air Force experienced multiple successes with its sexual assault prevention and response (SAPR) program in fiscal year 2019. However, we also endured continuing challenges. Despite these challenges, the Air Force adopts a collaborative approach amongst its functional communities and echelons of command in order to combat sexual assault. Collaborative efforts begin with prevention and continue through final case disposition and accountability of offenders. In terms of prevention, the Air Force embraced the Department of Defense's Plan of Prevention and Action Self-Assessment and used this tool as a means to emphasize how important the prevention of sexual assault is in our Service. Additionally, the Air Force intends to expand this tool in fiscal year 2020 as a forum for Major Commands to provide vital feedback to continuously improve prevention efforts. The Air Force also engaged the Major Commands in fiscal year 2019 in the Air Force Integrated Resilience Directorate's first-ever Headquarters Major Command Roundtable. This forum enabled Major Command program managers to collaborate with Headquarters to provide vital feedback on program successes and failures and to influence program execution and policy across the Air Force Integrated Resilience Directorate's portfolio. The Air Force emphasized collaboration amongst SAPR, medical, law enforcement and legal personnel in sexual assault response. As such, high-quality, victim-centered services remained a key priority in fiscal year 2019."
