Anti-fraud, bribery and corruption

We will proactively seek to deter, prevent and detect any instances of fraud and corruption.

We are committed to the prevention of fraud, corruption and theft, whether by employees, councillors, contractors or members of the public. All issues will be investigated in a consistent manner. Police referrals will be made where appropriate and prosecutions made in accordance with council policy.

We promote a culture of honesty, openness and accountability and will take every action necessary to protect the public funds within our control from misappropriation.
