GRAND JURY

CRIMINAL GRAND JURY

The Criminal Grand Jury is selected by random from a cross-section of the county’s population – in the same way in which petit jurors (regular jurors) are selected. The main responsibility of the Criminal Grand Jury is to attend hearings to weigh evidence brought by the District Attorney's Office in order to determine on the basis of this evidence whether certain persons should be charged with a crime.

CIVIL GRAND JURY

Civil Grand Jurors are not summoned, but may volunteer by completing an application form. The main function of the Civil Grand Jury is to investigate county, city, and joint-power agencies. They act in a “watch-dog” capacity, by examining the operations of various government agencies within Los Angeles County.
