You deserve clean, honest government. The Public Integrity/Special Investigations Branch works toward that goal, investigating allegations of criminal misconduct by state and local public officials, as well as misuse and theft of public funds. The branch investigates numerous arenas of corruption including executive, judicial, legislative, vendor contract, regulatory, election fraud, social security fraud and systemic law enforcement corruption. ​​​

This branch is also instrumental in investigating allegations of voter fraud. When federal violations are identified, the unit works jointly with the appropriate federal agency and U.S. Attorney's office in addressing those violations. 

The branch also conducts investigations and provides support for other state agencies as requested.
