Public Integrity

The District Attorney’s Office created the Public Integrity Division to ensure that elected and appointed officials, and their subordinates, fulfill their legally mandated duties in a lawful, ethical and professional manner.

The division reviews complaints alleging criminal misconduct, prosecutes crimes committed by public officials in the course of their official duties and enforces the state’s Brown Act.

The Public Integrity Division’s ultimate goal is to increase the public’s level of confidence in its elected and appointed officials.

If you have evidence of criminal misconduct by a public official or employee, please send your complaint in writing to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, Public Integrity Division, 211 West Temple Street, Suite 1000, Los Angeles, CA 90012.

All complaints must be in writing and must contain some proof of criminal misconduct. Complaints will not be taken over the phone. To see a flowchart on how the division handles allegations, click here.
