Officials establish sexual assault hot line

  • Published
Air Force officials have established a phone line for U.S. Air Force Academy cadets to report sexual assault to the inspector general.

Current and former cadets can contact the IG by calling (703) 588-1541 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST.

The IG began an investigation March 10 of individual sexual assault cases of cadets and former cadets, and interviews will be for official Air Force use only. All information will be protected to the maximum extent possible under the Privacy Act.

Individuals that previously reported an assault through the Office of Special Investigations, the Air Force Academy chain of command or other channels, but feel their case was not handled properly should also report their case to the IG for further investigation, said officials.
