Public corruption remains a top criminal priority for the FBI. While the vast majority of public officials remain committed to the communities they serve, an extremely small minority of individuals usurp their public positions for personal or private gain. The FBI, along with our law enforcement partners, remains dedicated to ensuring this behavior is fully investigated and, if necessary, prosecuted under the law.
Callers are asked to leave their name, telephone number, and a brief description of their concerns and observations on the voice-mail line. Agents will review voice-mail daily and contact individuals for follow-up as needed.
