Inspector General

Overview

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

  1. Resolves problems affecting the Civil Air Patrol mission promptly and objectively.
  2. Creates an atmosphere of trust in which issues can be objectively and fully resolved without retaliation or the fear of reprisal.
  3. Ensures the existence of responsive complaint and inspection programs characterized by objectivity, integrity, and impartiality.
  4. Ensures the concerns of Civil Air Patrol members and the best interests of the Civil Air Patrol are addressed through objective fact-finding.
  5. Educates Civil Air Patrol members and commanders regarding the privileges of and protection for those contacting an inspector general.
  6. 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. Specific, detailed guidance on the CAP IG program may be found in CAPR 123-1.

Subordinate Unit Inspection Information (SUI)

Subordinate Unit Inspections are being conducted for all units in NHWG, as part of the IG team’s normal duties.

Subordinate Unit Inspections (SUI) are governed by CAPR 20-3 and will be conducted every 24 months. The SUI will focus attention on items contained primarily in the published SUI checklist , but may include, as necessary and determined pertinent to CAP mission accomplishment by the headquarters staff: CAP Corporate policy and guidance; Air Force, Air Education and Training Command, Air University, CAP and CAP-USAF directives and instructions. The requirements found in directives published after the issuance of a SUI checklist take precedent over the content of the SUI Checklist.

****** Important ******

All SUI discrepancies are to be closed within 6 months of the date of the report being uploaded. Units not correcting all discrepancies within 6 months will be placed in a suspended status and prohibited from participating in any CAP activities (including weekly meetings) not related to closure of the discrepancies until all discrepancies are closed. If a subordinate unit is suspended, the wing commander, subordinate unit commander, wing inspector general and/or a person authorized by the subordinate unit commander to make entries into the DTS shall be the only members allowed into eServices. Waivers to exceed the 6-month maximum without restrictions being placed on the unit must be approved by the CAP/CC and the CAP-USAF/CC.


Compliance Inspection (CI) Information

“Compliance Inspections (CI)” are conducted for all Wings, approximately every four years.
