  Corruption and Government Fraud Bureau  
  The Corruption and Government Fraud Bureau gathers intelligence from across government agencies in New Jersey, and seeks to detect instances of improper dealings by elected and appointed officials, government employees and law enforcement officers, as well as those seeking to do business with government entities. The Bureau also works very closely with a unit of the State Police dedicated solely to investigation and prosecution of corruption cases.  
  The Corruption and Government Fraud Bureau is actively prosecuting numerous cases involving official misconduct, theft, bribery, fraud and other offenses involving public officials and employees. The Bureau has expanded its investigative and prosecution efforts into the area of political corruption by increasing intelligence gathering, source development and improving the lines of communication with Federal, State, county and local government agencies. Further, the Bureau has developed and prosecuted several large scale corruption cases against public officials. The commitment to these efforts remains a top priority of the Division.  
  The Bureau has focused its efforts in charging elected public officials, returning indictments against sitting Assemblymen and other local elected officials. The Bureau also has focused on large scale thefts from public programs and election fraud.  These cases resulted from the strong work of Bureau lawyers and detectives, often working very closely with our partners in the State Police. The Office of Public Integrity and Accountability (OPIA) has a statewide Corruption Tipline:1-844-OPIA-TIP (1-844-674-2847) and all information received through the tipline can remain confidential.
