Special Agent in Charge Thomas J. Browne


Public Corruption is generally defined as abuse of public trust, in violation of criminal law. A public official is any person elected, appointed, under contract, and/or a private individual who has or is engaging in a corrupt scheme that involves either a direct or indirect abuse of the public official's trust and/or undermines the integrity of federal, state or local governmental operations in violation of federal law.


The Little Rock Division is committed to the aggressive investigation of viable allegations of public corruption, which is the FBI's top criminal priority. Anyone wishing to report a possible public corruption violation can do so utilizing the Little Rock FBI's Public Corruption Hotline (501) 221-8200


 If you have an emergency situation that requires an immediate law enforcement response, you should first call 911 or contact your local police or sheriff's department.
