The NAGTRI Center for Ethics and Public Integrity (CEPI) was created in 2016 to provide attorney general offices with vital training to support the fight against corruption. CEPI serves as a resource for prosecutors and others seeking information about corruption prevention and anticorruption enforcement, particularly at the state level, as well as legal and governmental ethics.  

CEPI provides attorney general offices and government attorneys with: 

  • Specialized training focused on anticorruption and ethics. 
  • Research to support the unique needs of government offices. 
  • Technical assistance for prosecutors.
