Sexual Assault FAQs -- Question 5

Q: What is a sexual assault response coordinator? 

A: The SARC is an individual who serves as the designated program coordinator of victim support services to coordinate and oversee the local implementation and execution of the Air Force Sexual assault Prevention and Response Program. SARCs are embedded in the all Air Force communities CONUS and OS. Currently there are a few assigned to deployed locations and in the near future we can expect to see the SARCs present at any location there are Air Force members.

The SARC should be contacted immediately when an incident of sexual assault occurs. The SARC will explain the reporting options and the Victim Advocate services available to the victim and assign a VA if desired by the victim.
