Fort Hood leads with most sexual assaults reported in US Army posts

Posted November 20, 2017

In 2016, defense officials investigated 126 sexual assaults at Fort Campbell compared to 64 two years earlier.

Sexual assault rates in the US military haven't changed much in the last two years, according to newly released data from the Pentagon.

The numbers appeared in a first-ever base-by-base analysis of non-domestic-abuse sexual assault allegations.

"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", Galbreath said. Campbell spokesman in a statement.

The number of reports don't necessarily reflect the number of sexual assaults that occurred at a particular installation, however. In 2016, there were 155 unrestricted reports and 44 restricted. Previously, during the 2014 fiscal year, SAPRO estimated that only 14 percent of military victims were reporting.

In the Air Force, the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., saw the most reports, with 168.

Across all USA military installation types, most military victims are reporting their experienced sexual assault cases as unrestricted reports.

"We were very, very concerned about victim privacy", Nate Galbreath, the deputy director of the Department of Defense's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office, told Scene's sister paper the Riverfront Times.

The report, released Friday, covers the years 2013 to 2016. Brown said some cases are decades old but any reporting victim has access to counseling and medical attention while the report is investigated.

Sexual assaults can be made by active duty service members, adult dependents of service members and civilians who allege they have been assaulted by service members. But Camp Lejeune still sees the most reports each year, from 151 in 2012-13 to 169 in 2015-16. Meanwhile, an unrestricted report is referred for criminal investigation and to commanders. The database doesn't show what types of sexual assault were alleged or whether the victims were male or female, and the department notes that incidents reported didn't necessarily happen on the base.

He said "A report could involve allegations for an incident that occurred while on deployment, while away on leave, or even prior to entering the military". The Army base in Anne Arundel County, the state's largest workplace, saw reports rise from 24 in 2013 to 47 a year ago - an increase of 95 percent.
