DOD Inspector General Hotline and Whistle Blower Protection

Published: 09/02/21 | Updated: 09/23/21

The mission of the Department of Defense Inspector General Hotline is to provide a confidential, reliable means to report violations of law, rule, or regulation; fraud, waste, and abuse; mismanagement; trafficking in persons; serious security incidents; or other criminal or administrative misconduct that involve DOD personnel and operations, without fear of reprisal.

Although you may contact the DOD Hotline at any time, a faster way to resolve your complaint is usually to first contact your local or command-level Inspector General's Office. Call the Inspector General Hotline at 800-424-9098.
