Broward County > zArchive > zBroward Inspector General

The Broward Office of the Inspector General (OIG) was established by Section 12.01 of the Charter of Broward County, which was amended by the voters of Broward County. The Charter authorizes the OIG to investigate misconduct, including fraud, corruption, and abuse, and gross mismanagement.

The OIG’s authority extends over all elected and appointed County officials and employees, all elected and appointed officials and employees of the 31 municipalities located in the County, and all entities and persons who provide goods and services to the County and the municipalities. The mission of the OIG is to act as a watchdog for the residents of Broward County to promote and ensure integrity, accountability and competence in all levels of the governing process. In addition to our oversight of County and municipal programs and procedures, the OIG is responsible for investigating violations of the ethics codes that govern the conduct of County and municipal officials, employees, and providers.

Although our office cooperates with other agencies and investigators whenever it is appropriate, the Charter requires that the OIG function as an independent body to assure that we may carry out our responsibilities free from any external interference or influence.
