Abstract: This report details the efforts of the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) for 1992. Data reveals that reports of corruption were 6 percent lower than in 1991; however, the report states that 1991 was an election year, which may have affected the data. When adjusted for this effect, an increase of 3 percent is shown. Fifty- two percent of the reports received concerned the private sector, 20 percent the police, 25 percent all other Government departments, and 3 percent concerned other public bodies. The Community Relations Department of ICAC conducted a population-wide telephone survey to obtain readings of public perception of the problem of corruption and the ICAC's work in June 1992. Among the survey's findings were that 74.6 percent of respondents found the ICAC's anti- corruption work effective, while 75.2 percent considered that the ICAC's role would be increasingly more important. Also included in this report are reviews of ICAC's Administration Branch, Operations Department, Corruption Prevention Department, the Community Relations Department. Twelve appendixes contain varied information including memberships of committees, the organization of ICAC, investigation information, numbers of persons prosecuted for corruption and related offenses, and addresses and telephone numbers of ICAC's regional offices. A one-page tribute to the late Peter James Allen, Commissioner of ICAC, also is included.
