OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL

3RD QUARTER REPORT FY – 08

(March 1, 2008 thru May 31, 2008)

 

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) was officially created by Senate Bill 103, and House Bill 914, as an independent law enforcement division of the Texas Youth Commission (TYC).  Both bills were signed into law in June 2007.  OIG was established for the purpose of investigating: (1) Crimes committed by commission employees, including parole officers employed by or under contract with the commission; and (2) Crimes committed at a facility operated by the commission or at a residential facility operated by another entity under contract with the commission. 

OIG was also tasked with the operation of the Incident Reporting Center (IRC), which operates the SB 103, mandated hotline.  The hotline was established on March 6, 2007, as part of the task force initiative as a means for youth, family, staff, and other to report violations and crimes that occur in relation to TYC.  The IRC hotline is answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Once a call is received, a determination is made in reference to it being criminal, administrative, youth rights issues or youth care issues. The complaint is then forwarded to the appropriate division for review and/or investigation.

Both bills require the submission of quarterly reports to the following:

  1. The Executive Commissioner;
  2. The Advisory Board;
  3. The Governor;
  4. The Lieutenant Governor;
  5. The Speaker of the House of Representatives;
  6. The standing committees of the Senate and House of Representatives with primary jurisdiction over correctional facilities;
  7. The State Auditor;
  8. The Comptroller; and on
  9. The Commission’s Internet Website.
