From the Background: "From the early 2000s, Congress has intensified its efforts to support victims of military-connected sex-related and domestic violence offenses. These efforts include enacting over 100 provisions and providing resources intended to address such offenses and related misconduct. Department of Defense (DOD) implementation of these legislative initiatives includes making military leaders responsible for the safety of such victims. Commanders are also required to coordinate the military response to domestic violence involving servicemembers with the local community."
