The San Francisco Civil Grand Jury Gazette informs the reader of the previous year’s jury reports, the effect the reports have on city government and departments, and provides information about how to apply to be a grand juror. The Gazette showcases the jury’s function and effectiveness. The Gazette has been published each spring since 2010. This year, the 7th edition features the work of the 2014-2015 jury, including these reports:
- San Francisco’s Whistleblower Protection Ordinance Is in Need of Change
- San Francisco City Construction Program: It Needs Work
- San Francisco Fire Department: What Does the Future Hold?
- CleanPowerSF, at Long Last
- Office of the Assessor-Recorder: Despite Progress, Still the Lowest Rated Office
- Unfinished Business: A Continuity Report on the 2011-2012 Report, Déjà Vu
All Over Again
Learn about the work of the San Francisco Chapter of the California Grand Jurors’ Association (SFCGJA), which consists of former jurors who continue their commitment to the civil grand jury system. In particular, read about the work of the Education Committee’s mock civil grand jury program to educate juniors and seniors at Balboa High School about the civil grand jury.
130,000 copies of the Gazette will be included as a supplement in the Sunday, February 14th, 2016 edition of the San Francisco Examiner. Again this year, the Gazette can be accessed online on the Association’s website, www.sfcgja.org, at the Examiner’s website, www.sfexaminer.com, beginning on the day of publication, and on The Usual Suspects’ website, www.sfusualsuspects.com.
