File a Complaint
The Miami-Dade County Commission on Ethics and Public Trust seeks the public’s assistance in identifying unethical conduct and other forms of public corruption in Miami-Dade County and all 34 municipalities.
Public corruption occurs in many forms, but most often when a public official, at any level of government—local, state, or federal—does any official act in exchange for money or other free goods or services for private gain. Public corruption could also include public employees who take something of value for their own personal gain, thereby violating the public’s trust. Unethical behavior is a form of corruption that hits at the heart of what a government is supposed to do—serve its people.
Citizens can report suspected wrong-doing with the Ethics Commission by
- contacting the 24-hour hotline: 786-314-9560
- sending a fax: 305-579-0273
- writing an email
Formal complaints will only be accepted if filed on the appropriate form; signed and notarized.
The Complaint Process
Upon receiving a complaint, the Commission staff will conduct a preliminary analysis to ensure it is legally sufficient.
