JPSD will protect against waste, fraud, and abuse. An employee can report waste, fraud, and abuse by calling a whistleblower hotline number (601-960-8916) or accessing a link found on the district website. A whistleblower is an employee who in good faith reports an alleged improper govenmental action to the Office of the General Counsel initiating an investigation.
All information concerning the identity of a person or group of persons making a complaint is strictly confidential and will not be released by this office unless pursuant to an order by competent judicial authority. However, such information may be shared with other governmental agencies that become involved during the course of any related investigation. Mississippi public employees are protected by the Whistleblower Act (M.C.A. 25-9-171 ET SEQ) from retaliation resulting directly from truthfully testifying or providing information of improper governmental action.
