Office of the Inspector General

The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) is a part of the Office of the Secretary of the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services. The OIG is responsible for conducting a full range of independent and objective audits, inspections, management analyses and investigations. These assessments help to safeguard and efficiently manage the department’s resources, operations and business functions, and to prevent and detect fraud, waste, and abuse. This office also coordinates the department’s legislative audit response process, and provides technical assistance and advisory services to its audit customers. Inmates who have been sexually assaulted in detention can write to the OIG to report the abuse and any concerns regarding the handling of investigations into such abuse.
