Grand Jury Invites Community Groups to Request Speakers

Do you belong to a group that invites speakers to it’s meetings?  The Ventura County Grand Jury conducts an ongoing speakers bureau and outreach program.  Service organizations, community groups, non-profits and other groups are invited to request a presentation by current grand jurors.

The civil Grand Jury does not pursue criminal cases or hear evidence in courtrooms.  This all volunteer “public watchdog” group serves as an independent agent for the citizens of Ventura County.  It is their responsibility to investigate complaints from the public, write reports, and make recommendations about all components of local government such as city councils, school districts, jails, hospitals, harbors and water districts.  The Grand Jury can investigate issues ranging from alleged government violations of city and county codes to disaster preparedness, contracting procedures, health and safety issues and most processes, policies and practices of all departments or agencies within the cities and county of Ventura. 

The Grand Jury issues an annual report on it’s findings and recommendations.  Reports of Grand Jury investigations and responses from investigated agencies and departments can be found on the Grand Jury website at http://grandjury.countyofventura.org. Public complaint forms can be found on the site as well.

To learn more or schedule a date for a presentation please call the Grand Jury at (805) 477-1600 or complete a speakers bureau request form that can be found on the website.
