HoCo Fraud Hotline

Citizens and county employees send in your stories of disgust and inappropriate behavior to be shared with the rest of the county.  Click on the comments section.

As the Baltimore Sun Reported:

“It’s becoming more and more something that’s recommended,” in professional accounting circles, said Weinstein. “A lot of audit tips come through employee hot lines.”

Weinstein said he is waiting before implementing the program, which would allow reports either by telephone or computer, to get a legal opinion on whether Howard needs new whistleblower legislation to protect employees who report abuses.

Lets give them a head start.
