Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

The 2018-2019 Grand Jury published several individual Final Reports on various subjects in April, May and June. Report #18-02, Mental Health Services Act Fund Spending, and report #18-06, A Fair Review, were issued May 29, 3019. Under the California Penal Code, sections 933 et. sec., the Board of Supervisors must provide a response to the Presiding Judge of the Superior Court within 90 days of the date that a Final Report is made available to the public. The response to Report #18-02 and Report #18-06 is due by August 27, 2019 and the proposed response is therefore being submitted to your Board for approval.

 

Report #18-03, Jail and Juvenile Detention Centers Inspections, was issued on May 20, 2019. The Grand Jury did not request a response from the Board of Supervisors. No findings or recommendations address budgetary or personnel matters over which the Board has some decision making authority. Therefore, no response has been submitted from the Board of Supervisors, and this is outlined in the prepared response.

 

The attached draft response has been prepared in the form prescribed by Penal Code section 933.05 and addresses the findings and recommendations of the Grand Jury which are under the jurisdiction of the Board of Supervisors.
