The Superior Court of California, County of Sierra is seeking nominations of Sierra County citizens interested in serving on Sierra County’s Juvenile Justice Commission (“JCC”). Interested parties are strongly encouraged to nominate themselves.
The JCC will be made up of a minimum of seven individuals at least two of which are recommended to be between the ages of 14 and 21 years. The JCC is tasked with oversight of the County’s juvenile justice operations, as well as nominating individuals to be considered for appointment as the County’s new Chief Probation Officer.
Commission members serve a two year term, and the County provides reimbursement of up to $25.00 in expenses per meeting for attendance at up to two meetings per month. The time commitment for service is anticipated to be greater during the first quarter of service due to the County’s need to hire a new Chief Probation Officer. Thereafter, it is estimated the time commitment will be 1-4 hours per quarter.
Additional information and nomination forms for service are available by contacting the Court Executive Office at (530) 289-2930, or by visiting the Court’s website at: https://www.sierra.courts.ca.gov/divisions/4791.htm.
Please do not delay in acting as the Court needs to form this Commission now.
