Queensland crime watchdog receiving fewer complaints

QUEENSLAND'S new Crime and Corruption Commission has received fewer than half the complaints its predecessor did during the same period last year.

Acting chairman Dr Ken Levy briefed the Parliamentary Crime and Corruption Committee on Monday about the CCC's activity between April 1 and June 30, when it was still the Crime and Misconduct Commission.

He was also asked how many misconduct complaints had been received since July 1, when the CCC came into being.
"There have been 144 complaints alleging corruption since the first of July," he said.

"That compares with 339 complaints of official misconduct for the same period in 2013."
