Inspector General

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) provides a central point for coordination of and responsibility for activities that promote accountability, integrity and efficiency within the FWC.

The OIG accomplishes these goals through internal audits, investigations and management reviews. Additionally, the OIG conducts investigations brought under the agency's Ombudsman Program and investigates complaints that fall under the state's whistle-blower statute and complaints involving alleged sexual harassment.

Mike Troelstrup is the FWC's Inspector General.

Accreditation

On June 27, 2013, the FWC Office of Inspector General Investigations Section was accredited by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA).

In April of 2016, the FWC OIG Internal Investigations Section underwent a Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (Commission) assessment to retain state-level accreditation.  Accreditation is part of a voluntary process completed every three years, which recognizes professional excellence in the field. The re-accreditation assessment examines all aspects of the OIG’s Internal Investigations Section, including a review of policies and procedures, management, operations and support services.  

We are proud to report the FWC OIG Investigations Section passed the assessment and was re-accredited on June 22, 2016.  Congratulations to the Investigations Team for their accomplishments!
