Fort Riley Overhauls Sexual Assault Program

KSAL StaffApril 21, 2014

Fort Riley has revamped its services for sexual assault victims in the military, streamlining the process in a bid to make it easier for victims to report assaults.

The fort’s new Sexual Harassment/Assault Response & Prevention Center on the base near Junction City, opened earlier this month and gives alleged victims a one-stop shop for services.

Before the center was opened, victims who wanted to speak with a lawyer in the staff judge advocate’s office needed to go to separate buildings.

The offices now share the same hallway in a low-traffic building, allowing people to enter discreetly. Posters and banners around Fort Riley also encourage victims to “Speak Up.”

Fort officials also managed the change in about two weeks.
