The Grand Jury annually issues a final report which contains several reports addressing one or more issues. California Penal Code § 933 requires responses from governing agencies, including the Board of Supervisors, city and county governments, schools, special districts and certain nonprofit corporations. This ensures that their functions are performed in a lawful, economical and efficient manner. Each report contains information such as the background regarding the subject matter, reasons for the investigation, the procedures followed in obtaining information, findings, conclusions, and recommendations. All required respondents must reply, in writing, to each finding and recommendation in the specific report within a given time period.
Important Note: Usually, a Grand Jury report is released every June. Due to the pandemic, the 2019-2020 Tuolumne County Grand Jury’s term was extended from June 30 to December 31, 2020. The next Grand Jury was impaneled in February 2021 and they were not required to release a report in 2021. So there are no Grand Jury reports for the calendar year 2021.
