Special Victims Counsel

Osan Special Victims Counsel

Osan Special Victims Counsel


The Osan Special Victims’ Counsel (SVC) represents and advocates for victims of sexual assault, ensures that their rights are protected, and empowers them to fully participate in the Military Justice process.

 

The SVC’s goals are for victims to be heard throughout the Military Justice process as well as take full advantage of their rights.

 

The SVC serves primarily the Korean Peninsula, along with the rest of the Pacific Air Force (PACAF) region.

 

The SVC is supported locally by the Special Victim Paralegal (SVP) as well as the SVC Pacific Region. 


The SVC reports to the Air Force Legal Operations Agency (AFLOA) chain of command and not through Pacific Air Force (PACAF).

 

The SVC can represent all active duty U.S. military, adult and minor dependents, civilians (if perpetrator is AD military), and Air Reserve Component. 

Exceptions for an expansion of representation are made on a case-by-case basis.

 

Victims of sexual assault may request SVC representation by contacting the SVC office directly or through other helping agencies, to include the Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC) and Volunteer Victim Advocates.

 

The SVC office is currently located at Building 937, Room 114 (inside the SAPR Office).  In September 2016, the office will move to Building 781 Annex, Room 1.  Office hours are as follows:  Mon-Wed-Fri (0800-1700) and Tues-Thurs (0900-1700).  If you would like to contact the SVC, you may contact us at (010) 8664-3290, DSN 784-3290 , Comm 0505-785-3290 or at  51FW.CLSV.Orgbox@us.af.mil
