Published on December 20, 2018

Arlington County offers an easy, confidential and secure way to file complaints of suspected financial fraud, waste and abuse ― which helps the County maintain its high standards and reputation as a fiscally responsible government.

The Financial Fraud, Waste and Abuse Hotline enables anyone to make a direct report to the County either online or via phone. The website is available in Spanish and English. Phone calls can be taken in many languages.

Users should be sure to keep track of their username and password, so they can log back into the system or call back and check the status of their complaint. Remember — there isn't a "Forgot Password" button because the system is anonymous and doesn't know who users are.  The anonymous system is the only way County staff can ask follow-up questions about a submitted complaint and get additional information that may assist in conducting a thorough review.

The hotline does not handle issues such as code enforcement, zoning or personal theft. Use the A-Z directory at services.arlingtonva.us to learn more about these topics.
