How to Report Fraud, Waste, and Abuse

Internal Audit (IA) manages a hotline that allows community members and employees to anonymously report concerns about suspected fraud, abuse of position, and misuse of resources that may be occurring in the Jackson County organization. The hotline also allows reporting of other matters outside of fraud, waste, and abuse - such as personnel and policy matters.  We forward these reports to the appropriate party or entity to follow-up. IA uses a third-party provider, Syntrio, to operate a 24/7 telephone and online reporting system to take reports that are  then forwarded to us. We take all fraud, waste, and abuse reports seriously and evaluate the concern in a timely manner. Your report is important to help serve the public interest and assist Jackson County in meeting a high standard of public accountability.  The telephone Hotline can be reached 24 hours a day / seven days a week at 1-855-222-0469. The online reporting system can be accessed at
