The mission of the FWC Office of Inspector General (OIG) is to provide leadership in the promotion of accountability, integrity, and efficiency within FWC.
FWC OIG accomplishes these goals through internal investigations, inquiries, audits, and management reviews. OIG is responsible for conducting investigations that fall under the Florida Whistle-blower Protection Act and reports of sexual harassment involving FWC employees and/or contracting entities.
The FWC Inspector General is Mike Troelstrup.
On June 27, 2013, the FWC Office of Inspector General Investigations Section was accredited by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation.
In April of 2019, the FWC OIG Internal Investigations Section underwent a Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation 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 for a second time on June 26, 2019. Congratulations to the Investigations Team for their accomplishments!
