State Employee Reporting

There is a hotline that provides a confidential avenue to report allegations of wrongdoing pertaining to fraud, waste, and abuse of State assets.

There are two methods for reporting your complaint, anonymously or in confidence. Anonymously requires no name or contact information. However; in some cases, failure to identify yourself may make it difficult to investigate the complaint. If you provide your name and contact information it will remain confidential and will not be release to others or used in any public documents. All complaints are kept confidential under General Statute §143-748 and not subject to the public records law.
