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.  

To make a report of Sexual Assault call the SAPR 24/7 Support Line: (760) 577-6036

Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow has been directed to implement policies that focus on the access control procedures for visitors. MCLB Barstow takes active measures to address unauthorized access to the base and the protection of forces, residents and civilian employees. These policies are intended to help Marines accomplish the mission and keep families aboard MCLB Barstow safe.

Visitors of the base must present their driver's license to the sentry at an installation access control point (gate) and identify who they are going to visit. The sentry will record the driver's name, license number, date and time of entry. The license is authenticated and an instant background check through open public sources is conducted. After favorable results, the visitor is allowed aboard the installation.
