Domestic Violence Prevention and Reporting

Military families are an integral part of our community. Physical violence isn’t the only form of domestic abuse. Psychological/emotional abuse, neglect, verbal abuse, financial abuse, and sexual abuse are also forms of domestic abuse. If you’re concerned someone from the military community is impacted by domestic abuse, let them know they have options for reporting abuse and Family Advocacy Program (FAP) staff at local Fleet & Family Support Centers (FFSCs) will connect them to services and resources. The FAP provides a coordinated approach to preventing and addressing domestic and child abuse, incorporating medical, legal, investigative, security, chaplain, FFSCs, civilian support services and other resources. Licensed professional counselors are available free of charge at FFSCs. They are available to active duty and their family members – even Sailors who are unmarried can have couple’s counseling with their partners. Adult victims of domestic abuse have two reporting options - unrestricted or restricted reporting. Both options provide victims access to advocacy, medical treatment and counseling services, but restricted reporting does not trigger the investigative process or notify the victim’s or offender’s commander.
The MyNavy Family mobile app includes resources and information across all Fleet & Family Support Programs. The MyNavy Family App can be downloaded here.
