IBAC is Victoria’s anti-corruption agency responsible for preventing and exposing public sector corruption and police misconduct. IBAC does this by: investigating serious corruption and police misconduct; and informing the public sector, police and the community about the risks and impacts of corruption and police misconduct, and ways in which it can be prevented.
