Who We Are

As Sexual Assault Response Coordinators, or “SARCs,” for Camp Lejeune, we are available to assist you with matters regarding sexual assault. You may speak with us with the assurance of confidentiality.

In order to understand your reporting options, you can speak with a SARC, your Uniformed Victim Advocate, or a civilian victim advocate at the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program (750-5852), 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.
