The Civil Grand Jury is the only independent "watchdog" investigative body in Marin County. Our job is to monitor the performance of local government and make recommendations which can save taxpayers' dollars and improve services. We do thorough investigation of officials suspected of misconduct or potential government inefficiencies. These investigations follow complaints submitted by individuals.  Please visit our How to File a Complaint webpage if you would like information about filing a complaint. 

Each spring our Superior Court Judges review applications from qualified citizens who wish to serve on the Grand Jury. Once the jurors and alternates are identified, they are sworn in and begin serving their one year term on July 1st.
