  • Who: Service member's or employee's full name, rank/grade, and duty station
  • What: Specific wrongdoing and why you believe the activity was misconduct, to include the rule, regulation or law you think they violated
  • Where: Location where the wrongdoing occurred
  • When: Specific dates and times
  • How much: estimated dollar loss
  • Why and how: Describe why and how you believe the individual perpetrated the offense

Review the Hotline Complaint Form for additional assistance in filing a complaint.
