Abstract:

The Department of Defense DoD has a strong commitment to providing Sexual Assault Prevention and Response SAPR resources and services to all military members who report a sexual assault. Over the years, the Department, under the guidance of the DoD Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office SAPRO, has worked to create and improve programs in an effort to provide support to military sexual assault survivors. The Military Investigation and Justice Experience Survey MIJES is an anonymous survey and the first DoD-wide survey effort designed to assess the investigative and legal processes experienced by military members that have made a formal report of sexual assault, have gone through the military investigation process, and who have agreed to voluntarily participate in this survey. Administered between fiscal years 2015 and 2016 FY15 and FY16, respectively, the 2015 MIJES reflects the attitudes and opinions of 323 military members who brought forward a report of sexual assault to military officials and completed the military justice process from investigation to case closure. This is the only formal assessment of this population across all military Services, including active duty and Reserve component members.
