1. UNRESTRICTED REPORTING
Victims of intimate partner abuse who want to pursue an official investigation of an incident should use current reporting channels, e.g., chain of command, Family Advocacy Program (FAP), or law enforcement. Upon notification of a reported domestic abuse incident, victim advocacy services and FAP clinical services will be offered to the victim.
2. RESTRICTED REPORTING
Restricted reporting allows an adult victim of intimate partner abuse to disclose the details of his or her abuse to specifically identified individuals and receive medical treatment, victim advocacy services and counseling without requiring that notice be provided to the victim’s or alleged offender’s commander or law enforcement.
Victims of intimate partner abuse who desire restricted reporting under this policy must report the abuse to one of the following specified individuals:
- A victim advocate
- A victim advocate supervisor
- FAP counselor
