FORT RILEY, Kan. (AP)-- Fort Riley has revamped its services for sexual assault victims in the military, streamlining the process in a bid to make it easier for victims to report assaults.
The fort's new Sexual Harassment/Assault Response & Prevention Center on the base near Junction City, opened earlier this month and gives alleged victims a one-stop shop for services.
Before the center was opened, victims who wanted to speak with a lawyer in the staff judge advocate's office needed to go to separate buildings.
The Kansas City Star reports the offices now share the same hallway in a low-traffic building, allowing people to enter discreetly. Posters and banners around Fort Riley also encourage victims to ``Speak Up.''
Fort officials also managed the change in about two weeks.
