RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The North Carolina Division of Veterans Affairs has started a tip hotline to help improve services at the state’s medical facilities for veterans.
The move comes after allegations about problems with the federal government’s care for veterans.
The hotline will allow veterans and federal employees to confidentially report alleged misconduct at federal veterans’ facilities.
The Vet Tip Hotline, 844-NC4-Vets or VetTipsdoa.nc.gov, will connect the tipster with the state Division of Veteran Affairs executive staff. Tips will be referred to appropriate authorities at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for investigation.
The hotline was set up after the state veterans division received allegations of misconduct at federal medical facilities in North Carolina.
