FBI Offers Ways To Report Public Corruption

KRWG News – ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRWG) The Albuquerque FBI and other law enforcement agencies are making it easier for New Mexico residents to report suspected public corruption.

The FBI now has a hot line for reporting public corruption in New Mexico.

People can dial 505-889-1580. A recorded message asks them to leave their name and a brief message, and says their report will be looked at.

Residents also can send a report of public corruption electronically by going online to https://tips.fbi.gov or emailing AQ.FBI(at)ic.fbi.gov.

The Albuquerque FBI office also has created online questionnaires that can be used to identify public corruption.

The FBI says public corruption includes not only corrupt public officials but also such things as border corruption, economic stimulus fraud or abuse of government contracting authority.
