Aussies Welcome Scrutiny
(CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA) – Customs and Border Protection CEO Michael Carmody today welcomed the Federal Government proposal to give the Australian Commission for Law Enforcement Integrity (ACLEI) greater power to combat corruption.
“New legislation to conduct targeted integrity tests on officers suspected of corruption is something that we strongly support,” Mr Carmody said.
“There is no place for corruption in Customs and Border Protection. We take great pride in the good work our officers do to protect the community and we will not stand for anyone who compromises our integrity.
“We are alert to the reality that criminals will attempt to infiltrate the organisation or compromise staff to gain access to information or even active support of their operations.
“We are also undertaking a review of our existing anti-corruption strategies, in conjunction with ACLEI and our law enforcement agency partners, to determine whether we can do more to foster an environment that is resistant to corruption. Integrity testing is one tool that can enhance our existing Integrity Framework.”
