Would you like to improve our community? Sacramento County Superior Courts are currently recruiting individuals to serve on the 2015-16 grand jury for a one year term, starting on July 1, 2015. 

To qualify, you must be at least 18 years of age, a citizen of the United States and a resident of Sacramento County for at least one full year. Grand jurors must be able to communicate in English, both verbally and in writing. Applications are due by Feb. 2, 2015. Applicants’ names will be entered into a pool of screened and qualified applicants from which 19 names will be picked at random in the late spring.

Grand jury duties include investigating citizen complaints against county and city public agencies and officials, touring county prisons and investigating them if necessary, participating in indictments of criminal matters when requested by the District Attorney and producing a report to the county’s citizens each June that summarizes the grand jury investigations, and includes recommendations to any problems found.
