Sex assaults reported to Fort Bragg increase 28 percent

Sex assaults reported to Fort Bragg increase 28 percent

That decision was out of caution for the privacy of victims. The report by the Department of Defense's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office details the total number of sexual assault reports made from the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, joint bases and combat zones like Iraq and Afghanistan, from the fiscal years 2013 to 2016. Galbreath said. "And the answer is no". That is the highest number of sexual assault reports across all four years of all USA military installations across the globe, and 20 percent of all sexual assault reports from the Navy.

The report breaks down sexual assault rates for each installation, which is the first time this has been done. The newly released numbers cover the years 2013 through 2016. "This kind of flexibility allows the department to better meet the department's goals to increase reporting of sexual assault and decrease the occurrence of the crime through prevention".

Joint Base San Antonio, which holds Army, Navy and Air Force units, had the most sexual assault reports of any joint base from fiscal 2013 to 2016, with 881. The 2010 Census showed more than 6,600 residents living on base, which has more than 27,000 employees.

An unrestricted report is referred for investigation and the commanders of the service member who made it are notified as well as the alleged suspect or suspects.

Officials stress the alleged incidents were reported to Fort Bragg staff, but they could have happened somewhere else. "And as you know, these reports only tell part of the story", Galbreath told the RFT. The new data show a consistency among the installations handling the most sexual assault cases year-to-year, which include some of the military's largest posts. "And that's what gives us an idea of how prevalent the problem of sexual assault is".

According to the newly released data, a collection of US bases in South Korea had a combined 211 reports of sexual assault while Norfolk had 270 reports of sexual assault in the 2016 fiscal year, which began in October 2015 and ended in September 2016.

Reports of sexual assaults in combat zones have decreased dramatically since 2013, although they increased slightly a year ago, the data show. The release comes at a time when the Pentagon is attempting to address long-festering problems of sexual assault as well as the recent cascade of public allegations of assault by celebrities and politicians. On Thursday, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York), held a press conference in Washington, D.C., to announce the re-introduction of the Military Justice Improvement Act.
