The Indiana National Guard Office of the Inspector General provides assistance to the commander, soldiers, airmen, civilians, family member and retirees through inspection, inquiry and investigation to enhance discipline, efficiency, economy, morale, training and readiness throughout the organization.
The Military Whistleblower Protection Act protects members of the Armed Forces who report a violation of law or regulation, including sexual harassment, unlawful discrimination, gross mismanagement, a gross waste of funds, an abuse of authority or a substantial or specific danger to public health or safety. The Act entitles service members to lawfully report waste, fraud and abuse without fear of restriction, reprisal or punitive actions.

The Inspector General's role in resolving cases relating to the nonsupport of dependents is sometimes misunderstood by members of the chain of command and family members requesting assistance. Resolution of cases involving nonsupport and indebtedness is a command responsibility. Click here for more information about the process for handling cases of nonsupport.
Inspectors General conduct readiness assistant visits (RAVs) to assist units of all types to reinforce state and command programs and policies. We visit a unit and teach incoming personnel how to inspect their organization and re-establish systems that may have suffered because of our high-paced operational environment. RAVs are not IG inspections. RAV’s will not substitute for actual command inspections and normal training for soldiers in new positions.

Scan and email the form to email@example.com.
