Sheriff Hart created the Sheriff’s Advisory Team as one of his first acts during his first term of office. The Sheriff’s Advisory Team is a representative group of volunteers who live or work in Santa Cruz County. The advisory team will meet with Santa Cruz County Sheriff Jim Hart once a month to discuss law enforcement issues that are impacting all of us. We seek people who are open to new ideas and provide community feedback that lead to positive public safety outcomes.
The Sheriff’s Advisory Team is open to community members from all walks of life including residents from all five Supervisor districts, residents of the four local cities, and people working in the health, treatment, faith, education and business. The Team meets the second Wednesday each from 6 pm to 8 pm at Sheriff’s headquarters in Live Oak. Team members typically serve for a year.
There will be an education component to the Sheriff’s Advisory Team that will include touring all our facilities, jails and participating in a ride along with our Patrol staff so that each member fully understands all the services the Sheriff’s Office provides to the community.
Applications are due no later than August 8, 2018 and are available on the Sheriff’s Office website. The first session begins in September. Here is the link to apply: http://www.scsheriff.com/Home/SheriffsAdvisoryTeam/AdvisoryTeamApplication.aspx
