“While a culture of fear in coming forward is slowly eroding, it is important to give assurance that every concern received by my office is taken as seriously as the one before and after. Should a staff member wish to raise a concern or complaint in an anonymous capacity, it will be gladly received by my office and reviewed/investigated.”
