Media Release from Defence Force Ombudsman
The Commonwealth Ombudsman is also the Defence Force Ombudsman (DFO).
We investigate complaints about the Australian Defence Force. From 1 December 2016,we can also receive reports of serious abuse. Our services are free
We resolve disputes impartially and can receive reports of abuse confidentially.
Contact us after Defence has tried to resolve your complaint, except for reports of abuse. If you feel unable to report abuse to Defence, come to us directly.
We do not look into complaints about individual honours, award or discipline matters.
Always try and talk to your supervisor and use your Redress of Grievance processes first (unless you are reporting abuse directly).
