Anonymous Complaints

When you submit a complaint, you can file anonymously. Keep in mind that refusing to make a signed or written complaint makes the investigation more difficult to resolve effectively. The office will decide whether to investigate your complaint based on reported facts.

Once TABC Receives Your Complaint

The Office of Inspector General will: 

  • Notify you in writing, whenever possible, confirming that your complaint was received. 
  • Conduct interviews of involved parties and collect evidentiary materials. 
  • Prepares a report with the investigative findings and conclusions. 
  • Notify you of the results when the investigation has been completed. 

TABC has a zero-tolerance policy that strictly prohibits retaliation toward anyone who reports allegations of misconduct. Acts of retaliation are taken seriously, investigated, and, if found to be true, appropriate action is taken.
