Public Interest Disclosure

The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2018 establishes a scheme that encourages and facilitates the appropriate disclosure of public interest information.

Any person, including all public officers, wishing to make an appropriate disclosure need to determine whether the information is public interest information and who is the relevant authority to disclose the information to.

Public interest information is:

  • Public administration information – means information that raises a potential issue of corruption, misconduct or maladministration in public administration.

Further information can be found on the Public interest disclosure/Office for Public Integrity website or on the Commissioner for Public Sector Employment’s website.

Any person can contact the Office of Public Integrity, who is a relevant authority for all public interest information. The Public Interest Disclosure Act ensures that the identity of the person making the report is kept confidential.

To make a report visit make a public interest disclosure or you can contact a Responsible Officer in SAPOL by emailing SAPOL.PID@police.sa.gov.au
