Commission on Human Rights

The mission (role) of the County of Sonoma Commission on Human Rights is to provide leadership, guidance, and assistance in assuring that all members of our community — especially those among us who are marginalized or disadvantaged — enjoy the full range of human rights to which every person is entitled. 


Please join the Commission on Human Rights on Tuesday, July 26, 2106 at 6.00PM to learn more about community policing, and the efforts of City and County departments working in the area of law enforcement oversight.

  • Caroline Bañuelos, Chair of the Community and Local Law Enforcement Task Force (CALLE), will provide a summary of the work product of the Community Policing Subcommittee of the CALLE Task Force.
  • Jerry Threet, Director of the Independent Office of Law Enforcement Review and Outreach (IOLERO), will provide a summary of the scope of the office and share the oversight process being put in place.
  • Bob Aaronson, Independent Police Auditor for the Santa Rosa Police Department (SRPD) will provide a summary of the process in place to review the SRPD’s internal investigations into complaints, officer discipline, and use-of-force incidents.
