Sexual assault reports at Fort Bragg rose sharply previous year

The Pentagon disclosed data on Friday that revealed the number of sexual assault cases broken down by each military base

- Service members on active duty (Title 10 status) from all four DoD Service branches and activated Reserve and National Guard. On May 1 of this year, Navy Rear Adm. Ann M. Burkhardt, Galbreath's boss, unveiled the Pentagon's Annual Report on Sexual Assault in the Military for fiscal 2016.

- Eligible adult (18 years of age and older) dependents of active duty members.

The Army, the largest of the US defense forces, had a total of 8,294 reported sexual assaults over the four fiscal years, The Hill reports. In 2014, there were 212 unrestricted reports and 50 restricted. According to DoD, this option allows the reporter to confidentially seek advocacy and support/medical services. In joint bases, the number of reports decreased slightly from 705 in 2015 to 670 in 2017. Once this occurs, "The allegation is then referred for investigation and commander (s) of the reporting Service member and alleged perpetrator are notified".

More than 20,300 allegations of sexual assaults at military installations worldwide have been reported over the last four years, the Defense Department said Friday. "Military officers don't have the legal training that they need to make such hard decisions that in the civilian world would be handled by district attorneys with years of experience", Gillibrand said in a statement.

In fiscal 2016, there were 24 reports of sexual assault at the U.S.

More than 36,000 pounds of the food products made by a company in San Fernando may have been contaminated, according to the U.S. Again, if you did buy any of those salads, but they have a different inspection code, Trader Joe's says they should be fine.

The Pentagon report showed smaller increases at Colorado Air Force bases. "In general, increased reporting may reflect trust in our command and the military judicial process, and we feel our sexual assault and sexual harassment training and education efforts continue to foster and build that trust".

The Air Force and Navy were the only two that recorded an increase in reports.

During the 2016 fiscal year, JBER had the greatest number of sexual assault reports among Alaska's three military installations included in the report; however, JBER's rate of unrestricted reports also surpassed the others, too.

A restricted report is one made confidentially by a victim who may be seeking "advocacy, support services, medical care, and mental health counseling" and is not referred to criminal investigation, SAPRO said. Before 2013-14, they said, 15 percent or fewer military victims reported a sexual assault to a military authority, but that rate had more than doubled to 32 percent by 2015-16.

Regarding joint military installations, Joint Base San Antonio in Texas - comprising Army, Navy and Air Force operations - numbered 881 sexual assault reports, the highest in the period.
