As the Sexual Assault Response Coordinator, or “SARC,” for Camp Lejeune, I am available to assist you with matters regarding sexual assault. You may speak with me with the assurance of confidentiality.

In order to understand your reporting options, you can speak with me, your Uniformed Victim Advocate, or a civilian victim advocate at Camp Lejeune’s Community Counseling Center (451-2864), or with a medical service provider.

Restricted Reporting

Victims can receive medical treatment, advocacy, and counseling while maintaining confidentiality and protecting their identity. A restricted report to a UVA will not trigger a formal report to PMO or the chain of command. Restricted reporting protects a victim’s privacy in almost all cases.

Unrestricted Reporting

An unrestricted report to a UVA allows a victim to receive medical treatment, advocacy, and counseling. An unrestricted report informs the victim’s chain of command and ensures a thorough investigation of the assault in order to hold offenders accountable for their criminal conduct.

Uniformed Victim Advocates

The purpose of a sexual assault Uniformed Victim Advocate is to provide information, guidance (referrals), and support to Marines and sailors who have been sexually assaulted.

Sexual assault is defined as intentional sexual contact, characterized by use of force, physical threat or abuse of authority or when the victim cannot consent.

Sexual assault includes rape, nonconsensual sodomy (oral or anal sex), indecent assault (unwanted inappropriate contact or fondling), or attempts to commit these acts.
