American Fork City Fraud Hotline
Improper governmental activities may include:
- Violations of a law, rule, regulation, or policy applicable to the City
- Theft or fraud
- Abuse of authority
- Unethical conduct
- Gross mismanagement

Tips/complaints regarding regular City operations that do not involve the bulleted items above should not use the fraud hotline email. Those types of tips/complaints should be communicated directly to the responsible City department.
Utah Code § 67-21-3 prohibits public employers from taking adverse action against their employees for reporting government waste or violations of law in good faith, to the appropriate authorities. A public entity employee, public body employee, legislative employee, or judicial employee, is presumed to have communicated in good faith if they have given written notice or otherwise formally communicated the conduct to the entity (see Utah Code § 67-21-3(1)(b)(iv)(A) for more information).
The identity of the complainant is considered protected information under the Utah Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA) and will be kept confidential if requested by the complainant. (See Utah Code Section 67-3-1(15)). Complaints may be submitted anonymously to the Hotline. However, it is preferable that the complainant provide their name and contact information to allow for follow-up questions and reporting the results back to the complainant. Whistleblower protections do not apply to anonymous complaints.
