On October 10, 2014, we implemented an ethics hotline for the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners and the Citrus County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller called "Red Flag Reporting." Red Flag Reporting is an organization that is dedicated to protecting organizations from unethical behavior. Simply put, this service allows residents to report any concerns regarding unethical activity. This could range from financial concerns such as theft, misstated financial statements to issues such as harassment, discrimination, unethical behavior, improper employee conduct and more. This service is 100% independent from Citrus County and allows reporters to remain completely anonymous if they choose.
THIS SERVICE IS NOT A 9-1-1 TYPE SERVICE NOR IS IT A GENERAL COMPLAINT LINE. You should continue to dial 9-1-1 when appropriate and general complaints should be directed to appropriate departments of county government. For concerns related to the Citrus County Sheriff, Property Appraiser, Tax Collector, Supervisor of Elections, or another local government entity in Citrus County, please reference the numbers listed below.
This service is provided as part of our on-going efforts to ensure that we have strong internal controls and are serving the citizens of Citrus County in an ethical manner.
Reports can be made 24/7/365 via the internet (www.redflagreporting.com) or a toll-free number (1-877-647-3335).
