Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program


Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island and Eastern Recruiting Region
The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program will serve as the single point of contact to facilitate victim support services, promote sexual assault training and awareness, and provide policy and program assistance to commands located on Parris Island and within the Eastern Recruiting Region.
MCRD PI/ ERR 24/7 Sexual Assault Support Line: (843) 228-3599
DoD Safe Helpline: 1-877-955-5247
 Sexual assault is a criminal act and will not be tolerated. The Marine Corps’ goal is to eliminate sexual assaults within the Corps and to assist those affected by sexual assault. (MCO 1752.5C)
The MCRD Parris Island and ERR Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program provides 24/7 support and advocacy to all Marines, Sailors, and military dependents over 18.  We work to ensure all Marines, Sailors, and civilians who are victims of sexual assault are “treated with dignity, sensitivity, and without prejudice” (MCO 1752.5C).
Restricted Report
This enables someone to receive support services without triggering an official investigation. The following individuals have confidentiality and they are ready to help:
  • Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC)
  • SAPR Victim Advocate
  • Healthcare Provider
  • Chaplain*
  • Victims’ Legal Counsel*
*The Chaplain and VLC are not able to take a report but they are able to assist in a confidential manner
When a restricted report is made, medical care, advocacy and counseling services are available without notifying command or law enforcement officials. The SARC will notify the Commanding Officer of the Installation that an assault occurred without providing identifying information about the victim. A Marine who elects to make a restricted report can always change to an unrestricted report. There are some exceptions to the Restricted Report so please contact one of the resources above to get more information
Unrestricted Report
This allows the same support however an official investigation will be conducted by NCIS and the Command will be notified as well. 
The following individuals can assist in an Unrestricted Report
  • Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC)
  • SAPR Victim Advocate
  • Healthcare Provider
  • Chaplain
  • Victims’ Legal Counsel
  • Chain of Command
  • Law Enforcement
Details of the incident will only be shared with personnel who have a legitimate need to know. This option allows the victim to request a Military Protective Order, Civilian Protective Order, or an Expedited Transfer and enables the Marine Corps to potentially hold the offender accountable.
