Selection Process

Selection to serve on the County Grand Jury is an honor that affords members of the community an opportunity to do a great service. The Grand Jury is composed of 19 men and women of various backgrounds chosen from throughout Lake County.

There are two ways the court solicits applicants for the Grand Jury. The first is by advertising in the local papers. Secondly, invitations to apply are sent to 500 individuals randomly selected from a list that has been compiled from DMV and voter registration information.

Once applicants have been screened and approved, they are randomly selected to be members of the Grand Jury.
