Governmental and Ethics Compliance
Peggy Barton, Interim Director
The Department of Governmental and Ethics Compliance was created by parish ordinance in March 2010. The purpose of the department is to support a culture of ethics and system of compliance within parish government through the development and implementation of policies and procedures designed to detect, prevent and resolve illegal, unethical or improper conduct within parish government. The Department administers the Ethics Training Compliance and Personal Financial Disclosure programs and provides advice, counsel and technical assistance on conflicts of interest for Jefferson Parish public servants.
