Can I see the IG during normal duty hours?

There are no preconditions for coming to the Inspector General for assistance; however, during normal duty hours, military and Department of Defense (DoD) personnel must inform the chain of command that they are leaving their place of duty. They cannot just walk off the job and fail to inform their supervisors where they are going. After duty hours, they may go to the Inspector General without notifying their supervisors. Anyone, regardless of status, may make a complaint, allegation, or request for information or assistance to any Army or Air Force IG concerning matters of Army or Air Force interest.
