Escambia County schools fraud/waste hotline

ESCAMBIA COUNTY   --  Escambia County's school superintendent wants to know if anyone is ripping off the school system.

A new hotline lets people call in anonymous tips about theft or waste.
Superintendent Malcolm Thomas says, over the past five years, they have disciplined a few employees they've caught committing fraud.

He hopes the new hotline will encourage people to report any suspicions they have so any fraud or abuse is caught sooner.
  
The toll-free number is 1-855-819-1248.
They also have a website. You'll find that on weartv.com under Newslinks.
