Common Reasons for OSI Investigations

OSI investigations can be initiated for various reasons, reflecting the diverse challenges faced by the Air Force and Space Force. Some common reasons for OSI investigations include:

  • Criminal Offenses: OSI may investigate allegations of criminal offenses within the Air Force, ranging from theft and assault to more complex crimes.
  • Security Breaches: Investigations may be triggered by breaches of security protocols or unauthorized access to classified information, addressing potential threats to national security and the effectiveness of Air Force or Space Force operations.
  • Fraud and Misconduct: OSI examines cases involving fraud, financial misconduct, or unethical behavior, aiming to maintain transparency, accountability, and ethical standards within the Air Force and Space Force.
  • Counterintelligence Matters: OSI is actively involved in counterintelligence services, investigating espionage, unauthorized disclosures, and other activities that pose a threat to the missions of the USAF and USSF and national security.
  • Sensitive Personnel Issues: Investigations may be conducted in response to sensitive personnel issues, such as allegations of harassment or discrimination.
