San Diego Civil Grand Jury

The San Diego County Grand Jury investigates citizen complaints {Include link to complaint form} and performs a traditional function as a watchdog over government agencies. (This is different than a "Criminal Grand Jury" which is a group of people summoned together by a prosecutor to decide whether there is enough evidence to press criminal charges.) The California Constitution provides for a group of 19 citizens of San Diego County to be brought together and dedicate a year of full-time "watchdog" service looking into the workings of government.
A new Grand Jury is chosen each year by July 1. Members are nominated by Superior Court Judges to serve one-year terms.
