How to report a PAC complaint:

You can report through your 

Chain of Command

     The Chain of Command or Command designated personnel (EOR) is the primary and preferred channel to prevent and respond to complaints of PAC. Use of the chain of command to address PAC exemplifies trust in leadership to quickly and effectively address violations of our standards.

Equal Opportunity Representative (EOR) 

     The EOR is an authorized source within the command to receive complaints on behalf of the commander. EORs are appointed by their commander and are there if the immediate supervisor is not able to be used.
