Public Integrity

“Rhode Island’s election laws exist for a reason…They exist to make sure that the public knows the true source of funds used to support political candidates…In short, they exist to ensure the integrity of elections.” –AG Neronha

Upon taking office, AG Neronha restructured the White Collar Crime and Public Corruption Unit into the Public Integrity Unit, with a focus on maintaining the public’s trust in government and ensuring that all people are treated fairly and according to the law.

The Public Integrity Unit investigates and prosecutes crimes committed by state employees and officials in the course of their duties, including crimes related to violations of elections and campaign laws.
