Civil Grand Jury
Grand Jury Secretaries:
Apart from the investigations mandated by the California Penal Code, each county’s Grand Jury decides what it will investigate. Investigations may be initiated in response to letters from citizens, newspaper articles and personal knowledge.
Contra Costa County residents are encouraged to apply for service on their Grand Jury. Written applications are screened for eligibility. Then judges interview potential jurors and select citizens from each supervisorial district. This process reduces the list to about 30 candidates.
