Whistleblowing, fraud and corruption – strategy and policy documents

Anti fraud and corruption strategy

We are committed to protecting public money. This means preventing fraud or corruption so that public money is used to provide quality services to the community. People are entitled to expect the County Council to work with integrity, honesty and openness.

The strategy below sets out the County Council’s strategy for preventing, detecting, deterring and investigating fraud, corruption and other wrong doing.
