Rockville now offers a telephone hotline and website for community members to use to report potential fraud, waste and abuse related to city government services and employees.
The hotline and website allow community members to make anonymous reports. The service, provided through WhistleBlower Security, a contractor independent of the city, promotes transparency and provides an opportunity for the city to be made aware of potential problems.
Community members may report potential fraud, waste and abuses by calling 866-921-6714, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by filing an online report. Examples include violations of rules or regulations, gross waste of funds or theft of city resources.

A similar system is already in place for reports by City of Rockville employees. Alexandria, Virginia; Baltimore; Bowie; and Gaithersburg have lines for their employees and the public to report potential fraud, waste and abuse.
