A new resource, Safe Helpline, is for military service members to report sexual assault. This program allows victims to call, text or use live chat to report abuse.
According to the website:
In addition to providing help online, Safe Helpline is also available by phone. Safe Helpline is available from anywhere, anytime — 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week, worldwide: 877-995-5247. The phone number is the same inside the U.S. or via the Defense Switched Network (DSN). When calling from DSN, there are four toll-free area codes (800, 888, 866, and 877) as DSN area codes to enable a direct dialing capability. DSN users can dial US toll-free numbers by simply dialing 94 + the 10-digit toll-free number.
Safe Helpline provides confidential crisis intervention, support and information to members of the Department of Defense (DoD) community who have been sexually assaulted.
You can get live, confidential help anytime, anywhere.

It’s one of the first apps of its kind and it was developed by ICE, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The goal is to sniff out child predators with the public’s help.
All tips can anonymously be reported through the app, by phone or online.
ICE Acting Director John Sandweg says, “When children are being sexually abused and exploited, it’s a race against the clock to rescue the child and bring the predator to justice. These investigations are one of our highest priorities, and in today’s world, we need to be technologically savvy and innovative in our approach.”
An ICE press release says, ICE’s public relations division and members from the HIS Cyber Crimes Center invented the app, along with the help from field offices across the country.
