Significant DOI Cases


DOI remains the City's watchdog when it comes to malfeasance and fraud. The agency's jurisdiction is broad and includes any agency, officer, elected official or employee of the City and anyone who does business with or receives benefits from the City. DOI's strategy attacks corruption comprehensively through systemic investigations that lead to high-impact arrests, preventive internal controls and operational reforms that improve the way the City runs. Here are some of those cases:
