  • Go to a safe location away from the attacker. Contact a Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC), Uniformed Victim Advocate (UVA), Victim Advocate (VA), or Military One Source for Restricted/Unrestricted reporting.
  • IF YOU ARE LOCATED ANYWHERE IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, PLEASE BE SURE TO SPEAK TO A UNIFORMED VICTIM ADVOCATE OR VICTIM ADVOCATE FOR A RESTRICTED REPORT BEFORE YOU CONTACT MEDICAL OR LAW ENFORCEMENT. CALIFORNIA IS A MANDATED REPORTING STATE OF SEXUAL ASSAULT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSONNEL AND HEALTH CARE PRACTIONERS TO INCLUDE MILITARY TREATMENT FACILITIES.
  • Seek medical care as soon as possible. Even if you do not have any visible physical injuries, you may be at risk of becoming pregnant or acquiring a sexually transmitted disease.
  • Ask the healthcare provider to conduct a sexual assault forensic examination (SAFE) to preserve forensic evidence.
  • If you suspect you have been drugged, request that a urine sample be collected.
  • Preserve all evidence of the assault. Do not bathe, wash your hands or brush your teeth. Do not clean or straighten up the crime scene.
