Vic leaders to be positive example: IBAC

Victoria's corruption commission is entering it's sixth year by urging the state's public sector leaders to set a positive example to combat bad behaviour.

The Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission's new head Robert Redlich QC said leaders had to drive integrity and take action against wrongdoing.

"The fact that there is an independent agency in Victoria does not diminish the responsibility of our public sector leaders to strongly model integrity and promote corruption resistant cultures within their agencies," Mr Redlich said.

The commissioner said he was impressed by the organisation and its capacity to expose and prevent public sector corruption and police misconduct.

"Major cases of serious corruption have been exposed in some state and local government agencies, as well as serious police misconduct, and an impressive body of corruption prevention work has been undertaken," he said.

Since IBAC started it has assessed 18,869 allegations, completed 55 investigations and delivered 39 public reports.
