Not much appears to be going on in the tan building with the white numbers “360” here, but inside, the rooms are completely devoted to one complex issue in the Army: Sexual Harassment /Assault Response and Prevention.
Sgt. Maj. of the Army Daniel Dailey met with Soldiers of the 91st Engineer Battalion, 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, April 6 about the importance of preventing sexual harassment and assaults, and the detrimental effects that those crimes have on force readiness, at the “360 Training Facility,” Building 3754-A at Camp Hovey.
“It’s important that we sit down and talk about these things,” said Dailey “It’s something we can easily combat and get back to the business of what we’re about.”
The 360 Training Facility was established in late October of 2015 and is focused on SHARP education and training: annual unit refresher training, bystander intervention and affirmative consent. The facility also includes two victim intake rooms, which provide accessible and confidential methods for reporting.
“The purpose of the facility is to allow instructors to get away from ‘death-by-power-point’ teaching and incorporate the audience by having them role-play in different vignettes,” said Sgt. 1st Class Robert Crow, the 1st ABCT Sexual Assault Response Coordinator.
