The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program serves as the single point of contact to facilitate victim support services, promote sexual assault training and awareness, and provide policy and program assistance to commands located aboard Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow.
The Program serves as the focal point for coordinating all sexual assault prevention and response actions on Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow. The SAPR Program's mission is two-fold: to address the needs of military members that have been victims of sexual assault and to proactively provide relevant, interactive training on a regular, continuous basis to all Marines and Sailors aboard MCLB Barstow in an effort to eliminate sexual assault from within our ranks.
A SAPR Victim Advocate is assigned to help lessen the stress of a sexual assault. SAPR VAs have been trained and are able to offer victims assistance in three main areas: support, providing information about the different reporting options afforded them, and referrals to a multitude of different resources-both on base and in the local civilian community. Although SAPR VAs are not counselors, they do help victims navigate the system and can put the victims in touch with licensed, certified counselors and professionally trained victim advocates.
Sexual Assault is a crime, and it will take the efforts of every Marine, Sailor and leader to purge it from the Marine Corps.
