Our vision is to establish a national benchmark for recovery and eliminate sexual assault through empowered and engaged Airmen. To accomplish that goal, we educate, advocate and collaborate through our Sexual Assault Prevention and Response teams at all Air Force installations to respond to and stop sexual assault and its harmful effects on the Air Force.

It may be too early to judge the effectiveness of a new Department of Defense program known as “CATCH,” but several sexual assault response coordinators are already convinced of its merits. “CATCH” is short for Catch a Serial Offender, which rolled out last August for the Air Force and other military branches. Victims who have filed a restricted report can enter detailed information about an assault into a DoD database without risking the confidentiality of their restricted report.
