Public assistance programs are designed out of good-will to help those in need. Fraud and abuse diminish services for those who truly need them. Therefore, we take fraud and abuse seriously.
Our Inspections Branch reduces, investigates, and prosecutes fraud and abuse of public assistance programs. You can report suspected fraud by filling out this electronic form, calling the fraud hotline at (800) 344-8477 or emailing [email protected]
We also handle Children’s Services very seriously. The Inspections Branch conducts background checks on adults who seek to get involved in a child’s life, helps with high risk transports, assists law enforcement, conducts special investigations involving missing children, and handles various security needs that impact our department.
Below are some units that are part of the inspections branch.
