County employees can report suspected cases of unethical or illegal behavior on the part of any County official or employee by calling:


SCATS ~~ GCSD & Monroe County have Whistle Blower Hotlines. It's time for the Town of Greece and GPD to join the trend.

Sorry forgot to mention that number is for the School District, not sure if Town has one or not.

To 11:58AM ~~ My BLOG stated that it's time for the Town of Greece to get a Whistle Blower number. They don't currently have one ... thus the GPD problems following after the assessor scandal ... etc.

Remember a whistleblower called State Police about Rahn shredding documents back in April.

Wonder who that was???

SCATS said...

To 9:22AM ~~ Good question. As I recall, it was reported to have been someone in GPD's HQ on the day of the incident. Too bad they waited until the shredding (4 hrs of it) was completed. I think we still need a specific Whistle Blower Hotline though.

We should remember a whistleblower policy can only work if there is 'trust' of those running it.

Trust doesn't come about over night and it is pretty obvious there is alot TRUST still lacking at all levels of government.

Honesty, integrety, and straight talk must be maintained before TRUST can be attained.

Example - a cost/benefit analysis should be 'mandated' prior to the expenditure of taxpayer dollars. If elected officials were looking out for the taxpayers (those are the people who elected them)this type of proceedure would be automatic - otherwise decisions are made based on 'touchy/feely'.

Sound familiar?

To Charlie ~~ Don't forget the importance of govt operating in the open instead of behind closed doors.

Government has never operated in the open and it never will. It's wishful thinking.

Let me as nice as I can - your full of c##p.
The Greece school board operated in the open from 05/08 whenever possible (accept for personnel)and I (not alone) made sure it did.

Don't tell me it 'never has' OK?

To Scats - your right - you can never TRUST government operating behind closed doors.
