SAFB No Longer Under Sexual Assault Investigation

Sheppard Air Force Base is no longer under investigation in terms of sexual assault.

A press release was issued Wednesday stating there are no court-martial proceedings (planned or ongoing) at Sheppard based on the two-month investigation. The investigation did however reveal two allegations of possible consensual unprofessional relationships at Sheppard. Those allegations are being investigated further.

Here is the complete press release:

SHEPPARD AIR FORCE BASE, Texas - Concerned by allegations of misconduct by instructors at Basic Military Training, Gen. Edward A. Rice, Jr., commander of Air Education and Training Command, directed an investigation focused on matters related to misconduct, including sexual misconduct, between faculty/staff and trainees/students in both the Basic Military Training and Technical Training environments.

The exhaustive investigation, led by Maj. Gen. Margaret Woodward, lasted two months and required approximately 20,000 man hours to complete. The team interviewed more than 200 individuals among leadership, faculty and students; conducted focus groups with trainees, students and MTIs; and analyzed the results of more than 25,000 end-of-course surveys from graduates dating back to 2009. They also administered a survey to more than 18,000 trainees, students, military training instructors, military training leaders, and technical training instructors.

At this point, there are no court-martial proceedings planned or ongoing at Sheppard based on the investigation.

However, the investigation did result in two allegations of possible unprofessional relationships at Sheppard which are being investigated further. If these allegations are substantiated, appropriate actions will be taken. We have zero tolerance regarding the prohibition on unprofessional relationships between faculty or staff members and students.
