About the Sheriff's Advisory Team
The Sheriff’s Advisory Team is a representative group of volunteer members who live and work in the Santa Cruz County. The advisory team will meet with Santa Cruz County Sheriff Jim Hart, monthly and discuss law enforcement issues that are impacting our neighborhoods and rural areas.
The Sheriff’s Advisory Team will consist of community members throughout the county. It will be comprised of citizens from all walks of life including residents from all five Board of Supervisors districts, residents of each of the four cities, and people working in the health, treatment, faith, education and business professions.
There will be an education component to the Sheriff’s Advisory Team that will include touring all of our facilities and participating in a ride along with our Patrol staff so that each member fully understands all of the services the Sheriff’s Office provides to the community. The goal of the Sheriff’s Advisory Team is to open communication with the community we serve which will lead to positive public safety outcomes.
The Sheriff’s Advisory Team will be selected by August 21st, 2016. Deadline for the application is August 14th. Beginning September 2nd, 2016, the group will meet on the second Wednesday of each month from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the new Sheriff’s Office Headquarters, located at 5200 Soquel Avenue, Santa Cruz.
