The purpose of the Program Integrity Unit is to investigate suspected fraud and/or over payment referrals in all programs administered by the Wayne County Department of Social Services and to promote integrity in the programs.
Referrals are received from Social Services Staff, the State Office, Crime Stoppers, county attorney’s office, and the public. These referrals are prioritized based on the urgent need for an investigation.
Cases are handled administratively or are referred to the District Attorney for criminal prosecution. Cases are also referred to Civil Court for enforcement of collection of money owed. The phone number is 919-580-4034.
