INSPECTOR GENERAL (IG) MISSION

The IG is an extension of the eyes, ears, voice, and conscience of the commander. The IG is a personal staff officer providing the commander a sounding board for sensitive issues. IGs are honest brokers and consummate fact finders. Their primary functions are training, inspecting, assisting, and investigating.

Colorado National Guard IGs operate within an environment consisting of the commander, the commander's Soldiers and Airmen, family members, civilian employees, retirees, and other civilians needing assistance with a National Guard matter and the IG system. They must be sufficiently independent so that those requesting IG assistance will continue to do so, even when the complainant feels that the commander may be the problem. Therefore, IGs must maintain a clear distinction between being an extension of the commander and their sworn duty to serve as fair and impartial fact finders and problem solvers. Commanders must also understand this clear distinction for their IGs to be effective. Thank you for visiting our site.
