Notification by public officials (including CCC liaison officers)
As a public official or CCC liaison officer, it is your role to represent your agency in dealings with the CCC.
What you must report
You must notify us of any reasonable suspicion of corrupt conduct, in accordance with ss. 38 or 40 of the Crime and Corruption Act 2001 (having regards to ss. 14 and 15 of the Act). You are not required to conduct any preliminary inquiries, nor do you need evidence of any particular standard.
- Notify the CCC if you have a reasonable suspicion of corrupt conduct.
- Avoid telling people that they are suspected of corrupt conduct.
- Ask the CCC for advice if you are uncertain about whether a matter should be referred.
- Read Corruption in focus: a guide to dealing with corrupt conduct in the Queensland public sector. See also: Corruption prevention advisories.
- If the agency has conducted a preliminary investigation, include copies of any photographs, medical reports, video evidence, transcripts or tapes of any interviews conducted and any other relevant documentation obtained.
