The purpose of the Civil Air Patrol Inspector General System is, in part, to create an independent and objective system that:

  • Resolves problems affecting the Civil Air Patrol mission promptly and objectively.
  • Creates an atmosphere of trust in which issues can be objectively and fully resolved without retaliation or the fear of reprisal.
  • Ensures the existence of responsive complaint and inspection programs characterized by objectivity, integrity, and impartiality.
  • Ensures the concerns of Civil Air Patrol members and the best interests of the Civil Air Patrol are addressed through objective fact-finding.
  • Educates Civil Air Patrol members and commanders regarding the privileges of and protection for those contacting an inspector general.
  • Ensures inspectors general, inspector general staff members, and investigating officers are trained to conduct thorough, unbiased investigations and inspections based on fair and objective fact-finding.
