Advisory

The Sheriff’s Office has reviewed the 2014-2015 Monterey County Civil Grand Jury (MCCGJ) Final Report No. 13.

The Sheriff’s Office has reviewed the 2014-2015 Monterey County Civil Grand Jury (MCCGJ) Final Report No. 13. The Sheriff’s Office applauds the MCCGJ for their efforts and agrees with some of their findings. As described in the Report, the County and Sheriff’s Office have reached a tentative settlement agreement in Hernandez, et al v. County of Monterey, et. al. The settlement agreement requires the defendants and plaintiffs to work together in addressing many of the findings of the MCCGJ, including but not limited to medical care, classification, programs and staffing.

Additionally, many of the issues and recommendations detailed by the MCCGJ and not identified in the settlement agreement, had already been identified by the current administration. Improvements were made and practices were changed. Many additional changes have been implemented, or are in various stages of implementation.

The Sheriff’s Office looks forward to working with their partners to address the findings and recommendations of the MCCGJ and will continue to seek efficient and effective practices to ensure the safety, of staff and inmates.
