The Office of Public Integrity promotes and defends the integrity, efficiency and accountability of the County of Monroe and its operations. The office identifies and investigates allegations of waste, fraud and abuse by County employees, as well as outside vendors conducting business with the County. The purpose of this task is to promote an atmosphere of honesty and integrity within County government.

How We Operate

The Office of Public Integrity has the ability to examine all County operations independently and report its findings to law enforcement, when necessary. The office addresses concerns raised through the Whistleblower Hotline, which is accessible to all County employees, as well as County residents. To file a complaint, please see this form.

The Director has the authority to subpoena witnesses, administer oaths or affirmations, take testimony and compel the production of documents deemed to be relevant by the Director for any inquiry or investigation.

In addition to these responsibilities, the office proactively conducts financial and operational investigations/audits of County departments, and provides recommendations to improve accountability and efficiency. An annual report is prepared for the County Legislature and the County Executive, with further details of the office’s activities.

Integrity violations include, but are not limited to:

  • Theft of misappropriation of County resources
  • Falsification of official documents or reports
  • Corruption or official misconduct, including misuse of County information, conflicts of interest, or offering or accepting bribes
  • Personal use of County-owned vehicles, equipment or supplies
  • Conducting personal business on County time
  • Violations of County procurement policy or contract fraud
  • Tampering with government records
  • Obstructing, retaliating against or tampering with a public servant
