Contra Costa County’s Grand Jury consists of 19 citizens. A new Grand Jury is impaneled each year. Grand Jurors are officers of the Court, and function as an independent body under the guidance of a Superior Court Judge.

Apart from the investigations mandated by the California Penal Code, each County’s Grand Jury decides what it will investigate. Investigations may be initiated in response to letters from citizens, newspaper articles, and personal knowledge

Issues of concern and complaints may be referred to the Grand Jury for possible investigation. If you wish to submit an issue of concern or a complaint, please use the link below, “Referral/Complaint Guide and Form.”

Contra Costa County Grand Jury Demographics

California Rules of Court

Effective January 1, 2007, rule 10.625 of the California Rules of Court mandated that the jury commissioner or designee collect certain demographic data from prospective regular grand jurors, that this information be maintained in a database, and that an annual summary be made available to the public. The demographic data collected is as follows: age range, gender, ethnicity, occupation, and how the grand juror initially became a candidate (random draw, volunteer appreciation, or nomination by judicial officer).
