What should I do if I suspect County resources are being wasted or abused?

Suspected fraud, waste or abuse, or unethical behavior may be reported to the Internal Auditor at 352-341-6424. Identity of caller will be kept anonymous. The intent of Florida Statute 112.3187 (Whistle-blowers Act) is to prevent agencies or independent contractors from taking retaliatory action against any person who discloses information to an appropriate agency alleging improper use of governmental office, gross waste of funds, or any other abuse or gross neglect of duty on the part of an agency, public officer, or employee. You may also submit the report through the RedFlag Reporting. To file report you must use this client code, citrusres. Reports can be made anytime through the toll-free number 1-877-647-3335.
