Washington (NNS) -- Navy's 21st Century Sailor Office announced Aug. 17 the release of an updated instruction governing the SAPR program.

OPNAVINST 1752.1C is the first update since 2006 and includes comprehensive changes that organize policy into more coherent format, provides updated requirements, and emphasizes the importance of the prevention of sexual assault.

The information aligns with the National Defense Authorization Acts for Fiscal Years 2007 through 2014 requirements and Department of Defense policy and mandates. Additionally, the revision contains updates relating to safety assessment requirements, SAPR training requirements, retaliation initiatives, Reserve Component services, and availability of the Victims' Legal Counsel program for adult sexual assault victims within Navy.

The document incorporates many of the changes that have already been implemented through the use of NAVADMINs, and as a result cancels ten naval messages dating back to 2009.
