Taking the idea of “See something, say something” a step further, Brooklyn District Attorney Kenneth Thompson has launched a Public Integrity Hotline that Brooklynites can use to report possible public corruption.

The hotline—reachable at 718-250-2747—will collect tips ranging from allegations of bribery of public officials, election and/or other political fraud, corruption in government contracting, bid-rigging, waste and abuse of funds, and more.

Tips will then be reviewed by the D.A. office’s Public Integrity Bureau, which is responsible for sifting through complaints and investigating those deemed to have merit.

“My office is committed to rooting out public corruption in Brooklyn, and we take every complaint about corruption seriously,” said Thompson, whose campaign included a focus on tackling government corruption.
