Assault Victim Assistance

The Air Force Academy is expanding the mission of it's team charged with helping cadets report sexual assaults.

Colonel Debra Gray says the program is being expanded to include the entire academy populaton, not just cadets and prep school students.

Included in the team: a lawyer, an investigator, a commander, and a victims' advocate.

The new approach to handling sexual assault victims was adopted in May in response to claims the Academy ignored or mishandled sexual assault reports.
