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.
