To complain without fear of reprisal is the right of any Soldier, Civilian, or Family Member seeking IG assistance. Problem solving is one of the IG's primary missions. Before you report it to your Inspector General...
· Be sure you have a problem, not just a peeve.
· Give your chain of command a chance to solve the problem. (Many problems must be addressed to the chain of command for resolution anyway).
· If IG assistance is needed, contact your local IG first.
· Be honest and don't provide misleading information. (There are penalties for knowingly providing false information).
· Keep in mind that IGs are not policy makers. (IGs state policy, we do not interpret. If you need interpretation, contact JAG).
· Remember IG's can only resolve a case on the basis of fact. (A claim must be supported with evidence).
· Don't expect instant action on your request. Be patient. (Investigations take time, and IG's tend to have heavy workloads).
· Be prepared to take "No" for the answer. (In any case, 'Yes" or "No," the IG will explain why).
