Sexual assault reports at Fort Bragg rose sharply previous year

"One of the features of the department's reporting program is that service members can report allegations of sexual assault at any time and at any place", Nate Galbreath, deputy director of the Defense Department's sexual assault prevention and response office, told the Hill in a statement. A restricted report is not referred for criminal investigation or to commanders.

That is an improvement over two years ago, the report said, when 15 percent or fewer of sexual assault victims in the military reported it.

The US military said it believes that a biannual anonymous survey provides a more accurate estimate of the number of sexual assaults. The total number of sexual assaults reported that year at San Diego's four Navy bases was 267.

Titled Reports of Sexual Assault Received at Military Installations and Combat Areas of Interest, the document tallies adult sexual assaults (not including domestic abuse) at Army, Navy, Marine and Air Force bases around the world, as well as in areas of conflict where US service people are deployed.

In 2005, the DoD enacted a policy to encourage more service members to report sexual assault, despite when or where the incident originally occurred. And while reporting on JBER's Army side has decreased in the past year, reporting on the Air Force side has increased. Then there was a slight decline past year to 114. In joint bases, the number of reports decreased slightly from 705 in 2015 to 670 in 2017.

At any point in time, a DoD victim may choose to change their filed restricted report to an unrestricted report.

The new data show a consistency among the installations handling the most sexual assault cases year-to-year, which include some of the military's largest posts. In 2016, Army posts received 2,205 sexual assault reports.

It found that between 2013 and 2016, 8,896 complaints of sexual assault were made in the Air Force and nearly as many, 8,294, were made in the Army, the largest branch of the Armed Forces. There were 24 reports at the Naval Academy in 2016 and 20 at Andrews.

The new report also indicates that JBER's total number of sexual assault reports increased since 2015; however, reported numbers are not as high as the 2014 fiscal year.

"A report could involve allegations for an incident that occurred while on deployment, while away on leave, or even prior to entering the military", Galbreath added. The department reported that prevalence rates among active duty women went from 6.1 percent in 2012 to 4.3 percent past year.
