The Mississippi Department of Marine Resources is an organization with a strong commitment to compliance and ethics. Our written standards and policies contain general guidelines for conducting business consistent with the highest standards of conduct.
The Mississippi Department of Marine Resources is committed to maintaining an environment where open, honest communications are the expectation, not the exception. We want you to feel comfortable in approaching your supervisor or management with questions and concerns including instances where you believe violations of standards or policies may have occurred.
Although the MDMR Ethics Hotline is not a substitute for established channels of responsibility, it does provide opportunities for reporting behavior when those mechanisms are not suitable. The hotline is operated 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and may be accessed either through this web page or by calling 1-855-729-4275.
In some situations you may prefer to use this hotline, hosted by a third party hotline provider, EthicsPoint. You may submit reports relating to violations of our written standards and policies, as well as ask for guidance related to compliance or ethics matters.
The information you provide to EthicsPoint will be sent to us in a format that protects your confidentiality. We take all reports about compliance and ethics matters seriously and will look into each report and follow up when further action is appropriate.
