Crime Stop accepting corruption and fraud reports

Published:Wednesday | July 5, 2017 | 9:42 AMJerome Reynolds

Members of the public can now make anonymous reports about corruption, bribery and fraud to Crime Stop Jamaica.

The organisation is also accepting reports about acts of malfeasance or misfeasance which affect the government’s revenue.

The move is part of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed with the Revenue Protection Division in the Ministry of Finance.

Under the MOU, the Division and Crime Stop agree to collaborate on areas of training and information sharing.

Among other things, the Revenue Protection Division has the mandate to minimise corruption within the Revenue Services – in particular, Tax Administration Jamaica and the Jamaica Customs Agency.
