Reporting corruption

Anyone can make a complaint to us about public sector corruption and police misconduct in Victoria.

Find out how to make a complaint.

Do you have to notify IBAC? Victoria Police, Protected Disclosure Coordinators and heads of public sector bodies must notify IBAC of suspected corruption.  

Why report corruption?

Corrupt activity left unchecked can:

  • lead to funding being diverted away from public services that support you and your family
  • waste public money and resources
  • undermine people’s trust and respect in government
  • support ongoing criminal activity
  • damage reputations of individuals, colleagues, organisations and the whole public sector.

Corruption hurts everyone.

Help prevent corruption

Reporting corrupt activity helps IBAC:

  • expose corrupt activities and risks that may otherwise remain hidden
  • provide assurances that dishonest practices are disrupted and stopped
  • ensure that public sector employees act in the public interest
  • identify corruption trends, issues and potential risks
  • gather intelligence which may lead to an IBAC investigation.
