Integrity Commission

Complaints and investigations

Complaints

The Integrity Commission in Tasmania is independent of Government and deals with formal complaints and information or evidence received by it, about misconduct and serious misconduct.

Reporting misconduct by public officers or making a complaint about misconduct is an important way to help ensure that our public authorities operate honestly, ethically and fairly.

Investigations

The Commission only investigates the more serious or significant complaints or those requiring the use of its powers.

Investigations can be very wide-ranging and can include requiring witnesses and subject officers to give evidence, involve the searching of public sector premises and, under warrant, the searching of private premises. Gathering evidence in a complex investigation can take a significant period of time.
