Seeking citizens of the County to serve on the 2016-2017 Grand Jury.

The Superior Court of California, County of Glenn, is seeking citizens of the County to serve on the 2016-2017 Grand Jury. The Court each year is required by the California Constitution to impanel a grand jury. This body is mandated to investigate and report on both criminal and civil matters within the county. 

The Grand Jury is comprised of citizen volunteers. In order to secure prospective Grand Jurors, seven hundred and fifty applications are now being sent to the citizens of Glenn County. In order to accomplish this, addresses for citizens are being randomly selected from the voter registration and the Department of Motor Vehicle’s rolls. As a part of this application process, the Court is also seeking volunteers to create a diverse pool of applicants to be representative of the community of Glenn County. 

Service on the Grand Jury is a very important duty that is essential to the successful administration of justice. The Court encourages all application recipients to serve their community and exercise their civic duty by participating in this vital and rewarding public process. Once the Grand Jury is impaneled, their meetings are held once a month.

If you are interested in participating in the Grand Jury process and did not receive an application or you need further information, please contact Ms. Priscilla Butler, Court Administrative Secretary, at 530-934-6382 or go to our web site at and print the application.  Applications need to be received at the courthouse by April 15, 2016.
