Fraud Hotline

What Types of Complaints Are Investigate?

The Hotline provides an avenue for citizens, public employees, and contractors to report their concerns about potentially improper City fraudulent activities including:

  • Waste or misuse of public funds, property, or manpower
  • Violations of a law, rule, or regulation applicable to the government
  • Gross mismanagement
  • Abuse of authority
  • Unethical conduct

What Information and Data Do I Need to Provide?

An important step in establishing the significance of reported concerns is to provide credible information and substantiated data with each complaint.  Essential information includes specifics on ‘who, what, where, when’ as well as any other details that may be important such as information on other witnesses, documents, and pertinent evidence.

Providing specific examples and documentation that directly support the reported allegations will increase the likelihood that the Office will be able to pursue the complainant’s concerns.  If the complaint is too broad, vague, or unsubstantiated, we will not be able to perform an effective investigation and the complaint will likely be declined.
