Active intervention is one key element of sexual assault prevention. It emphasizes the responsibility of all service members to protect each other and to actively intervene in circumstances that may lead up to sexual assault. The mission of Fleet and Family Support Program SAPR Program is to prevent and respond to sexual assault, eliminating it from our ranks through a balance of focused education, comprehensive response, compassionate advocacy, and just adjudication in order to promote professionalism, respect, and trust, while preserving mission readiness.
