DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The 2019-20 Grand Jury published several individual Final Reports on various subjects in May and June. Report #19-03, County Credit Cards, and report #19-04, Policing Those with Behavioral Health Issues, were issued May 8, 2020. 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 #19-03 and Report #19-04 is due by July 30, 2020 and the proposed response is therefore being submitted to your Board for approval.

The Board of Supervisors considered the draft response on July 14, 2020 (Legistar #20-0899, Item 25), and directed staff to make changes to the draft response. The attached revised draft response reflects the Board's comments from July 14, and has been prepared in the form prescribed by Penal Code section 933.05 to address the findings and recommendations of the Grand Jury which are under the jurisdiction of the Board of Supervisors.
