1-800-CORRUPT

1-800-CORRUPT

On January 18, 2009 the ACB launched the 1-800-CORRUPT line which is monitored off-shore. This toll free number provides an independent, secure and anonymous telephone line through which members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, Customs and the general public may pass information/intelligence on corrupt practices/actions of employees of the Jamaica Constabulary Force and Customs Officials.

To assist the agency; since August 2014, the 1-800-CORRUPT confidential number has been adopted by Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) as a hotline for reporting organised crime as well as corruption.

How The Line Works

  • All calls that are made to the 1-800-CORRUPT number are answered at an off-shore Crime Stoppers International Call Centre.
  • The information/intelligence provided by the caller are sanitized and thereafter forwarded to a dedicated point of contact within MOCA.
  • All information received is acted upon in real time.
  • It is believed that many persons would willingly give information if they are of the opinion that their identity will be kept anonymous. The assurance given here is that the 1-800-CORRUPT line is absolutely secure.
  • The effectiveness and integrity of this reporting line must be maintained if the 1-800-CORRUPT toll free number is to reap the desired success.
  • The staff at the call centre of the 1-800-CORRUPT number are not interested in the identity of the source, just the information/intelligence that the caller has, remember, your identity will never be requested.
  • There are numerous instances in which information received via 1-800-CORRUPT has been acted on resulting in numerous investigations and arrests of Police personnel and others involved in corrupt and unethical practices.
