What is a Restricted Disclosure?

There will be two ways you can notify a sexual offence to SeMPRO:

For more details on Defence's policy, please contact SeMPRO.

If you are a member of the ADF and have been affected by sexual misconduct, you are encouraged to contact SeMPRO. Defence APS employees and external service providers are also able to access SeMPRO's services, should they wish to. Defence will ensure personnel on deployment, serving offshore or in remote areas have access to SeMPRO's services although, in some situations, it may not be possible for these personnel to make a Restricted Disclosure.

Changing a Restricted Disclosure to an Unrestricted Report does not mean that everyone should or will know about you or what happened to you. SeMPRO will work with you to ensure your details are disclosed only to those who need to know.
