Commander’s Checklist for Unrestricted Reports of Sexual Assault Mobile App
The Commander’s Checklist for Unrestricted Reports of Sexual Assault is an app that is useful in a military setting when sexual assault occurs.
How does it work?
Unfortunately, sexual assault and sexual abuse is all to common among the armed forces. The environments in which victims may be placed are not always conducive to the easy reporting of sexual assault incidents. The checklist items for unrestricted reporting include ensuring the physical safety of the victim, providing the victim with emergency healthcare, and more. Unrestricted reporting is a form of sexual assault reporting whereby an individual discloses that they are the victims of sexual assault, and commence a full criminal investigation into the incident, vs. restricted reporting which simply provides notification to a commander that sexual assault occurred, but provides no details, and have no formal investigation. The Department of Defense has this bifurcated approach to sexual assault reporting in order to provide sexual assault victims with multiple reporting avenues.
