GRAND JURY MISSION STATEMENT

What is the Grand Jury?

The Grand Jury is a division of the Superior Court that keeps watch over numerous government agencies, cities and districts throughout Santa Barbara County.  A separate criminal Grand Jury is formed by random draw from trial jury lists when it is necessary to decide criminal indictments.

Who are Grand Jurors?

Grand Jurors are a diverse volunteer group of citizens from the five supervisorial districts.

What does the Grand Jury do?

The Grand Jury may investigate, evaluate and make recommendations to any city, county or special district agency that receives county funds.  California law requires the Grand Jury to inspect County and city jails and detention facilities, and to review County financial accounts and records.  The Grand Jury relies on its own discretion and citizens' suggestions to determine other issues to investigate.
