FAP’s primary goals are prevention of family violence, identification and assessment of abuse, and support and treatment services.

What are my reporting options?

It is important to know there are two types of reporting options for domestic abuse - Restricted and Unrestricted Reporting. To discuss these options in detail, contact a FAP Victim Advocate. Please note that disclosing abuse to command or law enforcement may affect eligibility for restricted reporting. Restricted reports cannot be made for suspected child abuse.

**All Service and DON personnel have a duty to report information about known and suspected cases of domestic or child abuse that come under their observation.**

How do I connect with a victim advocate?

To report domestic violence or child abuse or connect with a FAP Victim Advocate, call our 24/7 Family Advocacy Helpline (805) 804-2283.
