In this episode of the Prevention Podcast, we explore a troubling new report from the Defense Department that shows incidents of sexual assault have increased nearly 50 percent during the past two years at the  U.S. military’s service academies.

After a decade of concerted efforts to rid the military of sexual assault, harassment and the destructive behaviors that often contribute to incidents of unwanted sexual contact, senior Defense Department officials told lawmakers that their sexual assault prevention programs have not only failed to stop assaults but have also failed to improve reporting.

Dan Verton has the latest on what leaders of the military academies are doing about sexual assault and how LiveSafe has played a role in helping to improve incident reporting in the Navy.
