What to report, what not to report

Please take a moment and see information about what to report and what not to report on this page. 

The hotline is not intended for employment-related issues and concerns, which are governed and addressed by existing city policies and procedures (see “What Not to Report” below).

Disputes between private parties, say over an auto sale or other transaction, aren't within the scope of our hotline.

Nor are housing issues, problems with neighbors or police matters (though other city departments or agencies may have oversight).

If you have a suspected issue that falls within the scope of the Fraud Hotline, you can submit details through the button at the bottom of this page.
