Fraud and Corruption

A message from the Chief Executive Officer


We are committed to a high standard of ethical and accountable conduct and will support and protect the reporting of wrongdoing.

Sutherland Shire Council has zero tolerance of fraudulent or corrupt conduct by its councillors, employees, contractors, suppliers and volunteers to the Council. Further, Sutherland Shire Council does not tolerate detrimental action taken against people who come forward to report suspicions of such conduct.

We will take action to prevent, detect, investigate and manage fraudulent and corrupt conduct. Where appropriate or required by law, we will report fraudulent and corrupt conduct to the Independent Commission Against Corruption and the NSW Police Force.
