NorCo Controller Announces Fraud Tip Line
That's a new tip line set up by NorCo Controller Steve Barron to enable employees and County residents to report suspected fraud and government waste. It will be monitored by Audit Manager Frank Kedl and the Controller Stephen Barron. “I will follow up as best as possible on anonymous tips,” Barron said. “I will also send information to other municipalities and local law enforcement if I feel a tip warrants further investigation.”
Barron explained that CCAP’s line does not follow up on anonymous tips and doesn’t generally share or take tips unrelated to the county.
Although anonymity is guaranteed, Barron said it would make his job easier if people who have concerns identify themselves. "If a person leaves their name and information I will not release their name or information unless they allow me to do so," he promised. "The goal is to stop fraud and waste and rest assure that all tips will be worked to get to that end.”
