Last updated 12/10/2017 at Noon

SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Superior Court is now in search of dedicated residents with sound judgment from throughout the county to serve on the 2018-2019 San Diego County Grand Jury. The county grand jury investigates citizen complaints and performs its traditional function as a “watchdog” over government agencies. It does not conduct criminal investigations.

Applications are now available by telephone at (619) 450-7272 or in person at the San Diego Superior Court in the jury services office, at the central downtown branch, and the jury lounges at the north, south and east branches of the court. Applicants may also download an application from the San Diego Superior Court’s website at or the grand jury’s website at

The 19-member body will work four days a week, approximately six hours a day, July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019 at the Hall of Justice in downtown San Diego. A small stipend per day, plus mileage and downtown parking is provided.

All application forms must be received by Jan. 12. Qualified candidates will be nominated for a random drawing, tentatively scheduled for June 1, 2018. The random drawing gives each supervisorial district equal representation by population.

Candidates must be U.S. citizens, be at least 18 years old, have sufficient knowledge of the English language and have lived in the county for one year before selection. All candidates will be required to pass a criminal background check. Individuals meeting the above requirements are encouraged to apply.
