The Placer Superior Court is seeking applications from Placer County citizens interested in an opportunity to serve on the 2020-2021 Grand Jury.

The Grand Jury’s one-year term begins on July 1, 2020, and ends on June 30, 2021.

In order to meet the minimum qualifications for service on the Grand Jury, applicants must be United States citizens who are 18 years of age or older and must reside in Placer County for a minimum of one year immediately prior to becoming a grand juror. Service on the Grand Jury requires a substantial investment of time, usually 40-50 hours per month.

  • March 4 at 6 p.m. at the Grand Jury’s Office, 11532 B Avenue in Auburn.

  • April 14 at 10 a.m. at the Grand Jury’s Office, 11532 B Avenue in Auburn.

Additional information and applications for Grand Jury service are available by contacting the court executive office at 916-408-6186, or by visiting the court’s website at www.placer.courts.ca.gov.
