The Human Services and Public Health Department's Fraud Investigation Unit is responsible for investigations of alleged public assistance fraud including cash, food support, medical and child care assistance.
When suspected fraudulent activity is reported, an investigation occurs to determine if there has been a program violation. Reports of suspected fraud come from various sources: staff, other counties, the State Department of Human Services, the tip line, letters and e-mail.
Fraud may result in a person being disqualified from receiving public assistance benefits, an overpayment or criminal prosecution.
