At DCCR, we understand the public’s desire to be heard is often tempered with the fear of retribution. Whether you’re a government employee or a member of the general public, you need the freedom to speak out against corruption, wrongdoing, or just plain bad policy on the part of Delta County government without fear of being fired, harassed or otherwise threatened.
Here are a few ways to confidentially “tip” DCCR bloggers about your issues and concerns.
Unfortunately, DCCR must limit its beat strictly to Delta County government. If your issue has any tie to county government, we’re interested in hearing about it.
DCCR is protected by the reporter’s Shield Law that protects journalists — and bloggers like us — against the compelled disclosure of confidential information, including the identities of our sources, or the forced surrender of unpublished written material collected during news gathering, such as notes.
