DOD: Reports of sexual assaults on Fort Carson almost triple

According to the newly released data, a collection of USA 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.

In the Air Force, the installation with the most allegations of sexual assault in fiscal 2016 was the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado, with 44 reports.

According to the report's estimation, a year ago less than a third of military members who experienced a sexual assault went on to report it.

According to the Department of Defense, sexual assaults include rape, forcible sodomy, abusive sexual contact and attempts to commit those crimes. The release today lists the number of reports alleging sexual assault that are being handled by Sexual Assault Response Coordinators at military installations worldwide.

"One of the features of the department's reporting program is that service members can report allegations of sexual assault at any time and at any place", said Dr. Nate Galbreath, the deputy director of SAPRO.

In fiscal 2016, there were 24 reports of sexual assault at the U.S. Campbell spokesman in a statement.

In 2016, in the most recent data on the prevalence rates of sexual assault, surveys showed a decrease from 7.1 percent of active duty women in 2012 to 4.4 percent in 2016, and from.8 percent of active duty men in 2012 to 0.6 percent in 2016. Navy installations received 1,285, Air Force bases received 1,043 and Marine bases received 825 in 2016. That represents about 21% of the sexual assaults investigated at all Navy bases. However, reported cases in 2016 were less than half of the DOD-estimated 14,900 incidents among military members previous year.

Based on military installations, the world's largest Navy base, Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia, had 1,055 reported assaults during the four-year fiscal period.

The report, released Friday, covers the years 2013 to 2016.

In 2013 there were 165 unrestricted reports and 42 restricted.

In 2014, Lejeune's number dropped slightly to 150 before ballooning to 164 in 2015 and then 169 in 2016.

The report said the location of where a report was made does not necessarily mean the incident occurred at that location.The reason is that victims may report a sexual assault at a time and place of their choosing.
