Fraudulent or Unethical Behavior, Waste, and Abuse
As part of Council's commitment to core values, the County has implemented an anonymous, 24-hour hotline and website for individuals to report potentially fraudulent and/or unethical behavior, waste and abuse.
The hotline is managed by an independent third party. When you call the hotline, you will be greeted by an experienced interviewer who will walk you through the process. You can either give the interviewer your name, or elect to remain anonymous. The interviewer will then prepare an incident report that is submitted to County Administration, the County Attorney, and Internal Audit. Each incident that is reported to the hotline is investigated thoroughly and appropriate action is taken if necessary. If you choose to remain anonymous, you will be given an incident number and will be asked to call back in approximately two weeks. During this two-week period, the County has the ability to post questions/information to the hotline that will be communicated to you by the interviewer when you call back. This allows the County to communicate with you while maintaining your anonymity.
For online claims, please visit the websites listed below and follow the step-by-step instructions. Please allow two weeks for a response from the County.
