Volunteer on the Grand Jury

The Superior Court of California, County of Nevada is seeking applications from Nevada County citizens interested in an opportunity to serve on the 2019-2020 Grand Jury.

The Nevada County Grand Jury is a judicial body sanctioned by the Superior Court to act as an extension of the Court and the conscience of the community. The Grand Jury is an investigative body created for the protection of society and enforcement of its laws. A Jury's function is to inquire into and review the conduct of county government and special districts. It is also authorized to inspect and audit the books, records, and financial expenditures of all agencies and departments under its jurisdiction to ensure funds are properly accounted for and legally spent.

In order to meet the minimum qualifications for service on the Grand Jury, applicants must be United States citizens who are 18 years of age or older, and must reside in Nevada County for a minimum of one year immediately prior to becoming a grand juror. Service on the Grand Jury requires a substantial investment of time, usually forty to fifty hours per month.

The Grand Jury's one-year term begins on July 1, 2019 and ends on June 30, 2020. Applications to serve on the 2019-2020 Grand Jury are due May 11th by 5:00 p.m. Submit an application online from the Nevada County Courts website.

Additional information and applications for Grand Jury service are available by contacting the grand Jury at (530) 265-1730, or by visiting the Nevada County Superior Court's website.
