Sacramento County takes reports of fraud seriously and investigates all reports thoroughly. The Sacramento County Fraud Hotline is for reporting suspected fraud, misconduct or abuse by Sacramento County employees, contractors and vendors.
Anyone can report fraud, waste or abuse; and retaliation of any sort will not be tolerated by Sacramento County.
"When making a report, it is important to provide as much detail as possible so that your report can be fully investigated,” said Joyce Renison, Deputy Director of the Sacramento County Department of Finance. "Helpful details that should be provided include who, what, where and when the suspected fraud occurred.”
The Internal Audit Unit within the Assistant Auditor Division of the Department of Finance addresses any reported fraud and makes appropriate follow-up or directs to the correct department or agency.
