Grand jury seeks volunteers to serve as jurors for next term in Solano County
Solano County Superior Court is looking for a few good jurors.
The Solano County civil grand jury is seeking volunteers to serve as jurors for the 2010-11 term.
People who have lived in the county for one year, are United States citizens and at least 18 years of age may apply.
Part of the judicial branch of government, the civil grand jury serves as a watchdog agency and may examine all aspects of county and city government, school districts, special districts, prisons and jails. The grand jury also may look into citizen complaints dealing with government inefficiency or misconduct.
Grand jury service involves a time commitment of 10 to 25 hours per week from July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2011, and grand jurors may serve two consecutive one-year terms.
