If a trainee or Volunteer is the victim of a safety incident, Peace Corps staff
is prepared to provide support. All Peace Corps posts have procedures in
place to respond to incidents of crime committed against Volunteers. The
first priority for all posts in the aftermath of an incident is to ensure the
Volunteer is safe and receiving medical treatment as needed. After assuring
the safety of the Volunteer, Peace Corps staff members provide support by
reassessing the Volunteer’s worksite and housing arrangements and making
any adjustments, as needed. In some cases, the nature of the incident may
necessitate a site or housing transfer. Peace Corps staff will also assist
Volunteers with preserving their rights to pursue legal sanctions against the
perpetrators of the crime. It is very important that Volunteers report
incidents as they occur, not only to protect their peer Volunteers, but also to
preserve the future right to prosecute. Should Volunteers decide later in the
process that they want to proceed with the prosecution of their assailant, this
option may no longer exist if the evidence of the event has not been
preserved at the time of the incident.
