Sheriffs in California possess extraordinary powers, not only as law enforcement officers but also as the keepers of the jail and in many other public functions that are not presently subject to public oversight or accountability. The Sheriff in Santa Cruz County presently operates on an approximately $90 million budget per year, which constitutes about a quarter of the entire county budget.
AB1185 is a new California law that authorizes every county in California to form a commission to provide public oversight of the Sheriff’s department, the most powerful law enforcement agency in our county. Join us for a discussion on the need for such a commission in Santa Cruz County and hear from various stakeholders — from the Sheriff himself, to families and professionals that have been impacted by Sheriff practices and policies. We will discuss all aspects of this commission and of the Office of the Inspector General it empowers.
