Interpersonal Violence in the Department of the Air Force: Findings of the Interpersonal Violence Task Force   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Document: "In July 2020, the Secretary of the Air Force (SecAF) directed the formation of an Interpersonal Violence Task Force to examine whether the Department of the Air Force (DAF) was keeping Airmen and Guardians safe from interpersonal violence (IPV). This was, in part, triggered by tragedies involving U.S. service members [...]. In both cases, the victims had reportedly experienced IPV immediately prior to their deaths. [...] In the aftermath of these tragedies, the DAF community wanted to better understand the dynamics that led to these deaths and determine whether additional measures were needed to keep Airmen and Guardians safe when faced with the potential for ongoing IPV situations. [...] The task force designed and administered an anonymous, online survey to the entire DAF-- Active Duty, Guard, Reserves, and civilians--over a six-week period during fall 2020 [...] Overall, 54% of individuals who took the survey indicated experiencing at least one behavior the task force categorized as falling within a type of IPV[.]"
