The 2016-17 Santa Barbara County Grand Jury (Jury) assessed the adequacy of the responses to the nine Investigative Reports issued by the 2015-16 Grand Jury. Each Investigative Report requires responses from one or more government agencies. These reports contained 144 recommendations. In 79 instances, the responding agencies have either implemented the desired change already, plan to do so in the future, or require additional study or analysis before deciding what to do.
The mandate of the Grand Jury is to shine a light on governmental operations within Santa Barbara County. The form and timeframe of the agencies' responses are required by California Penal Code §933 and §933.05. All Grand Jury reports and responses are posted on the Jury's website (www.sbcgj.org).
