Reporting Fraud, Waste and Abuse

The Seminole County Clerk of the Court and Comptroller’s Office is striving to make local government more effective, open and accessible to all citizens. Therefore, the Clerk is very interested in receiving any citizen or employee concerns regarding fraud, waste, or abuse within Seminole County government operations. The Clerk’s Division of Inspector General is charged with the responsibility for reviewing and responding to any citizen or employee concerns with regard to reported fraud, waste, or abuse within Seminole County government operations.

There are four (4) ways to report a concern to the Seminole County Clerk’s Division of Inspector General:

    1. Hotline: 866-889-8808 or AlertLine. This is a ethics hotline operated by Global Solutions.
