Kansas Senator visits SHARP Academy

Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS) and his staff spent time with the U.S. Army SHARP Academy leadership Wednesday, Aug. 10 to gain a greater appreciation about the training program to develop unit Sexual Assault Response Coordinators and Victim Advocates. Roberts was impressed to learn enlistees receive sexual assault and sexual harassment awareness training at the recruiting station. Once at basic training, new recruits will also receive a 3-hour block of instruction on SHARP within the first 14 days of training, and the avenues available to them should they experience a problem while in the service.
