The Kansas National Guard

Inspector General's Office

 

Our Mission

To provide the Adjutant General a continuing assessment of the readiness of units and activities assigned to the Kansas National Guard.

Who are we?

  • The Inspector General (IG) functions as an extension of The Adjutant General’s (TAG) eyes, ears, voice and conscience.
  • We are neutral, unbiased fact finders who execute our duties based on four (4) IG functions: teach and train; assistance; inspections and investigations.
  • We provide advice on matters concerning the well-being and readiness of Service members, civilian employees and family members.

Our Goals

  • Keep the TAG, staff, & unit leadership fully apprised of significant issues & concerns affecting the KSNG, especially those issues & concerns pertaining to unit readiness and the care & welfare of Soldiers, Airmen, civilians, and family members.
  • Work with the commands, units and other agencies, as appropriate, to help resolve concerns brought to the IG’s attention. Through this partnership, we want to make the Command the “Hero” and help them to get there.
  • When noncompliance with requisite standards is found, help commanders identify the “root cause[s]” of such noncompliance . . . & work to fix them.

Confidentiality

The IG will do everything possible to keep confidentiality when handling complaints; however it may be unavoidable to disclose some information to properly handle the case. In such instances we will try to contact the complainant prior to disclosure.
