The Inspector General (IG) is an extension of the Installation Commander's eyes, ears, voice, and conscience.
The IG serves as the Personnel Staff Office and trusted agent for the command as well as an honest broker for inspections, assistance and inquires/investigations in support of current, former, and retired Soldiers, civilians, family members, and civilians working for the Department of the Army within the Camp Atterbury community.
The self-described mission of the Inspector General is "to inquire into and periodically report on the discipline, efficiency, economy, welfare of Soldiers, morale, training and readiness throughout the Army".
Before You Contact the IG:
Be sure you have a legitimate problem, not an annoyance
Give your chain of command a chance to solve your problem--many problems must be addressed by chain of command for a resolution
OR give your agency supervisor a chance to resolve your problem
When You Contact the IG:
Be honest and don't mislead. The IG will discover the truth and there are penalties for providing false information
IGs can only resolve a case on the basis of fact. A claim doesn't make it fact; a claim must be supported with evidence. The more evidence provided, the more easily a claim is resolved
Be patient--thorough inquiries take time
Understand that the outcome of a case may not be what was expected, but know that the IG will explain reasons for a decision
To complain without fear or reprisal is the right of any Soldier, civilian or family member seeking IG help.
