Government Ethics and Public Corruption

Southwest Florida Conference

Presented by:

  • Naples Commission on Ethics and Governmental Integrity
  • Miami-Dade County Commission on Ethics and Public Trust
  • Collier County Sheriff’s Office
  • State Attorney’s Office, 20th Judicial Circuit
  • Palm Beach County Ethics Commission

The line between unethical conduct and criminal public corruption can often be a very thin one. Over the course of two days, this conference will examine various forms of government misconduct; what can be done to prevent, identify and prosecute it.

The conference will be of interest to investigators, prosecutors, auditors and compliance officers as well as elected officials, journalists who cover local government and the public in general. Experienced practitioners will discuss ethical and corruption issues in local government as well as offer an in-depth look at investigative techniques and practices unique to public integrity investigations.

Hyatt House Naples,
