    Other information

    Reporting and investigating alleged corruption

    Reports of alleged potential corruption within the South Australian public sector are received by the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) from a variety of sources including the Independent Commissioner Against Corruption (ICAC), the Australian Crime and Intelligence Commission, the Crown Solicitors Office, SAPOL’s Internal Investigation Section, Crime Stoppers, police officers, members of the public, and from whistleblowers pursuant to the requirements of the Whistleblowers Protection Act 1993.

    Type of Investigation

    2018-19

    ACB Investigation

    135

    ACB / ICAC Joint Investigation

    2

    In the ordinary course of business, ACB may conduct an initial investigation to assess information to determine whether there is a reasonable suspicion of corruption, or of serious or systemic misconduct or maladministration. Where such a suspicion is subsequently formed the matter is reported to the Office for Public Integrity (OPI)/ICAC. In some cases ACB will provide the initial information or allegation(s) to OPI/ICAC as a matter of course.

    In many cases matters may be ‘filed’ following initial assessment/investigation, where there is no reasonable suspicion of corruption and no supporting evidence to warrant further enquiries into the information.

    Where ICAC has referred a matter to SAPOL to conduct an investigation, the Officer in Charge, ACB (or delegate) will determine whether that investigation is to be conducted by ACB, or alternatively sent to another appropriate SAPOL area. In certain circumstances where deemed warranted, ACB may commence a full investigation into a matter and advise ICAC of the commencement of that investigation.

    It is the case that having received a report of suspected potential corruption from ACB, ICAC may decide to refer the matter back to ACB for continued investigation, or to propose that the matter be a joint SAPOL/ICAC investigation. ICAC may also direct that SAPOL cease investigating the matter.

    It should be noted from time to time the Australian Commission for Law Enforcement Integrity (ACLEI) may also direct joint investigations with ACB pursuant to Law Enforcement Integrity Commissioner Act 2006. No joint ACB/ACLEI investigations were commenced during this reporting period.

    The breakdown of total ACB investigations managed during 2018-19 is recorded below (this table discounts the two joint ACB/ICAC investigation commenced during the period).
