City employees can use hotline to report fraud

HONOLULU (KHNL) - City and County of Honolulu employees now have a new hotline to report allegations of fraud, waste, abuse and ethical violations.

The Integrity Hotline lets employees report their concerns to a live call center outside City government every day of the week, around the clock.

The hotline service provider interviews the employee and sends a report to the City.  Callers may choose to remain anonymous.

The Integrity Hotline pilot was introduced to City employees earlier this year.  Since its rollout, the hotline has provided 30 reports on a variety of issues.

Mayor Mufi Hannemann says the hotline increases awareness of potential ethical misconduct.

The cost of the pilot program is $12,000.  It is scheduled to operate for another year and will be evaluated to determine if the results and benefits support the costs.

The Integrity Hotline does not change the public's ability to report any government-related concern through the complaint line at 768-4381.

Members of the public and City workers may also report ethics concerns or complaints directly to the Honolulu Ethics Commission at 786-7786.
