Responses to these six questions
What is the fraudulent activity?
When and where did the activities take place? Include date(s), time(s), and frequency.
Are there any other persons who may have additional information or who may have witnessed the event(s)? If so, provide names and contact information.
Is there evidence or documentation that can be examined? If yes, attach any documentation to your email.
How did you become aware of the activity in question?
a. Did you witness the occurrence?
b. Did you see any documentation indicating that it occurred?
Did you hear about the event from another person?
Do I qualify for whistleblower protection?
Utah Code §67-21-3 prohibits public employers from taking adverse action against employees for reporting, in good faith, government waste or violations of law to the appropriate authorities. A public employee, public body employee, legislative employee, or judicial employee is presumed to have communicated in good faith if he/she has given written notice or otherwise formally communicated the conduct in question to the UPD Fraud Hotline (see Utah Code §67-21-3(1)(a) for more information).
Will my identity be protected?
The identity of the complainant is considered protected information under Utah Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA) and will be kept confidential if requested by the complainant.
Complaints may be submitted anonymously to the UPD Fraud Hotline. However, a thorough investigation requires follow-up questions.
