Jim Erb, the county auditor-controller and treasurer-tax collector, said the new program will be used as a tool in anti-fraud programs implemented to strengthen the county’s stewardship over taxpayer resources.

In order to protect the anonymity of tipsters, the county has contracted with The Network Inc. of Norcross, Ga. Whistleblowers can provide information by calling (855) 326-9623 or online at

Erb’s office will investigate allegations of financial fraud while reports of sexual harassment and timecard abuse will be forwarded to department heads.



Do we need a hotline to see that there has been theft at CAPSLO? Do we need a hotline to see that county officials stage to miss meetings so there can’t be a vote and cost thousands of dollars to reschedule agendas? Do we need a hotline to let us know that CPS has abused their authority by taking reporters grandchildren from them? NO, WE DON’T! Nothing gets done when its right out in the open…..why waist the money? Our crooked ass county won’t do a damn thing about any of it all anyway! Embarrassing!
