The Commander, Naval Service Training Command (NSTC) desires to increase cadet safety awareness through the institution of Suicide Prevention, Intervention, and Hazing/Bullying Prevention programs within the Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) and Navy National Defense Cadet Corps (NNDCC) programs. All NJROTC/NNDCC units were directed to establish such a program beginning in school year 2014-15.
Senior Naval Science Instructors (SNSI) were directed, with the approval of and in coordination with host school officials, to implement, support, and operate Suicide Prevention, Bystander Intervention, and Hazing Prevention programs within their individual NJROTC/NNDCC units. It was further directed that senior cadet leadership be actively involved in leading these programs. The Suicide Prevention, Intervention, and Hazing Prevention programs are designated Area Manager Inspection (AMI) special interest items.
Our Unit has designated an Intervention Officer and an assistant Intervention Officer with the responsibility of training, monitoring and reporting within these three areas.
