James Heath's job is to crack down on corruption in Detroit. From workers not doing their jobs to bosses abusing their power, it's a problem that's plagued the city.


The Office of Inspector General was established by the 2012 Charter of the City of Detroit. 

The purpose of the office is to ensure honesty and integrity in city government by rooting out waste, abuse, fraud, and corruption. 

The Office of Inspector General investigates the actions of city employees, elected and appointed city officials, all other public servants as defined by the City Charter, and contractors and vendors who do business with the City. 

The office is headed by the Inspector General, who is appointed to a single six year term by the Detroit City Council.

The office is staffed by investigators, auditors, and attorneys who assist the Inspector General in carrying out the office’s charter mandated functions.  The OIG is required to submit quarterly reports to the mayor and City Council.
