Grand Jury Volunteer Opportunity Available

The Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara is currently recruiting
volunteers for the 2018 – 2019 Civil Grand Jury. The Civil Grand Jury, an arm of the Superior
Court, is a part of the Judicial Branch of government. It serves as the County’s civil watchdog
agency and may examine all aspects of the County and city governments, special districts, and
school districts. The GrandJury may also inspect jails and juvenile detention facilities.

Grand Jury service affords citizens the unique opportunity to contribute to the efficiency of local
government and to play an integral part in ensuring that government officials are accountable to
residents. Candidates must be willing to dedicate this year of service to keep careful watch over
various aspects of County government, and the one-year term of the 2018-19 panel will begin on June
21, 2018.

Applicants must be 18 years of age or older, United States citizens, and residents of Santa Clara
County. Grand Jury service requires a significant commitment of your time—an average of 25 hours
per week, or as determined by the Grand Jury. However, selection as a member is an honor, and it
will afford you a unique opportunity to make a significant contribution to the efficiency and
integrity of local government.

Grand Jurors are paid $20 per diem and reimbursed for their mileage.

The application deadline is Thursday, March 29, 2018. Persons interested in applying may obtain an
application online at www.scscourt.org under “Civil Grand Jury.” Questions about the Grand Jury may
be directed to CGJ@scscourt.org or by contacting Tamara Davis, Deputy Manager Civil
Grand Jury, at (408) 882-2721.
