* Complete confidentiality; chain-of-command is NOT notified
* Access to medical care, counseling, legal assistance, and Victim Advocate support
* Gives victim time and increased control over the release and management of personal information; may convert to unrestricted report
* Empowers victim to gain valuable information and the support needed to make an informed decision about participating in criminal prosecution
* LIMITATIONS: Does not allow for expedited transfers, military protection orders, or ability to hold perpetrator accountable

Unrestricted Report:

* This is any report of a sexual assault made through traditional reporting channels, ie: victim’s chain-of-command, police
* Access to medical care, counseling, legal assistance, and Victim Advocate support
* Limited confidentiality: Details of the allegation will be provided only to those who have a legitimate need-to-know

* Law enforcement investigation enhances opportunity to hold perpetrator accountable
* Victim may request expedited transfer, military protection order
* LIMITATIONS: Cannot change to restricted report; may not be enough evidence to convict perpetrator, investigation/court proceedings may be lengthy
