Sexual Assault Defined

Sexual assault is criminal conduct that falls well short of the standards America expects of its men and women in uniform and is a violation of our Air Force Core Values.

Sexual Assault is unwanted sexual contact characterized by use of force, physical threat, abuse of power, or when the victim does not or cannot consent. Examples: inappropriate touching, groping, or fondling for sexual gratification, as well as penetration, oral stimulation, sodomy, or any attempt to do these things.

Consent can be obtained verbally or through body language or gestures as long as they are unambiguous and ongoing. It is everyone's responsibility to be 100% certain that they have consent. A person cannot consent if they are incapacitated, for example by alcohol, drugs, or sleep deprivation. The lack of physical resistance or a verbal "no" does not constitute consent.

Reporting Options

The Air Force has instituted new avenues for reporting sexual assault in the form of Restricted and Unrestricted Reporting. Restricted Reporting allows a victim to report a Sexual Assault without triggering an investigation. It is intended to give the victim (survivor) time and control over the release of their information. Further, it also empowers the survivor to make an informed decision about participating in the criminal process.

Restricted: Confidential reporting that allows a service member, adult dependent, or a defense civilian to report a sexual assault and seek support services such as mental health, victim advocacy, and legal representation. Office of Special Investigations (OSI) and chain of command will NOT be notified.

NOTE: Medical Providers, other than Mental Health, are mandatory reporters in California.

Unrestricted: Reporting option for service members, adult dependents, and defense civilians to report a sexual assault and seek accountability for the reported offender. An investigation will be initiated and "need to know" individuals in the chain of command will be notified. Respect for privacy remains a priority with this option, as well.

Independent: Reporting option for someone other than a victim, such as a friend, co-worker, or mandatory reporter, to report a sexual assault.

SAPR

Mission Statement: Promoting a Beale AFB culture that is intolerant of sexual assault: providing meaningful prevention strategies, coordinating compassionate response protocols, and ensuring total system integrity.

Contact Information

The Beale Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) office provides a 24-hour, seven-day a week response capability. Talking to SAPR staff is a smart first step that allows a victim to preserve their reporting options and gain valuable information to guide them through their decision making.
SAPR 24/7 Hotline: 530-634-4000

Helping a Victim

As a Friend:

· Start by believing, not blaming
· Ensure physical safety; determine if emergency medical care is needed
· If recent incident, encourage him/her not to shower, eat, or dispose of clothing
· Encourage him/her to contact the SAPR hotline for a timely information and the option to report

As a Supervisor:

· You are a mandatory reporter of incidents affecting a subordinate
· Contact SARC for assistance with your reporting responsibilities
· Collect only basic information
· It is your Commander's responsibility to determine who has "need to know," so do not further disseminate without guidance
· In coordination with, and as directed by, your commander, monitor the well-being of the victim

Team Beale's Pledge

Sexual Assault:

I will not tolerate it.

I will not condone it.

I will not ignore it.

Oh no the app has gone rogue! 😱 If you have the app and are noticing the relentless bombardment of notifications about the ENDEX of our recent exercise, we want you to know we are aware. We won’t be able to get it fixed tonight, so in the mean time we suggest turning off your notifications. Once we get this rebel app under control, we will let you know so you can turn your notifications back on. #sorry
“Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth, And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds, --and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of --Wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung My eager craft through footless halls of air... Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace Where never lark or even eagle flew -- And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.” —John Gillespie Magee, Jr; ‘High Flight’ Rest easy, sir.

#HumbleBrag Today's the day Recce Town can officially say we aided NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration in executing a spacewalk. In 2016, NASA Astronaut Christina Hammock Koch, who is conducting the Expedition 59 Spacewalk today, spent a portion of her Space Flight Readiness Training at Beale. Since we're experts in the field of high altitude we were the obvious choice for helping her prepare for space. Koch relied on the members of 9th Physiological Support Squadron to educate and train her on how body will react at high altitudes, and it would appear our training didn't disappoint. In all seriousness, thanks for allowing Recce Town to be a part of this journey. Best of luck Christina! #NASA #Expedition59 #WomensHistoryMonth #Recce Coverage began at 3:30 a.m. PDT, but the spacewalk will begin shortly and will last for over six hours.

The 9th Medical Group recently executed a restructure of its Family Health Clinic to create two units of focused care: active-duty beneficiaries and all other beneficiaries. This restructure comes as part of the greater Air Force’s move to ensure the readiness of all active-duty Airmen through medical organizational culture changes that focus on continuous medical readiness, sustaining delivery of high-quality care, and new deployment requirements.
