PSA: WFO Public Corruption Campaign

02/18/2014
 

Mollie Halpern: Are you suspicious of a public worker involved in a bribery, embezzlement, or other corruption crime? The FBI’s top criminal priority is to combat public corruption.

Timothy Gallagher is the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Washington, D.C. Field Office.

Timothy Gallagher: The FBI will not tolerate public corruption at any level—whether it’s appraisers, inspectors, clerks, government contractors, or even law enforcement.

Halpern: The FBI’s Washington Field Office has several squads working public corruption cases—including one dedicated to combating the crime in Northern Virginia.

Gallagher: Recently in Northern Virginia, the FBI has worked cases involving a DMV teller accepting bribes as well as cases involving officials at volunteer fire departments utilizing their offices for private gain.

Halpern: Public corruption costs the U.S. government and taxpayers billions of dollars a year, breaks the public’s trust, and compromises our country’s security.

You can be our eyes and ears: If you witness public corruption, don’t turn a blind eye—report it to the FBI.
