The Community Advisory Council ("CAC") is intended to assist IOLERO in functioning as a bridge between the many communities of Sonoma County and law enforcement, especially the Sheriff’s Office. One key function of the CAC is to hold public meetings and make recommendations on Sheriff’s Office policies, including, but not limited to, use of deadly force, community orientated policing, and other significant policies.
The eleven members of the CAC represent and reflect the geographic, racial, ethnic, cultural, and ideological diversity of Sonoma County. They are directly appointed by the IOLERO Director for one year terms and serve at the pleasure of the IOLERO Director.
Meetings of the CAC are held on the first Monday of each month, from 5:30pm-7:30pm, at the Permit and Resource Management Department Hearing Room, which is located at 2550 Ventura Ave, Santa Rosa, CA. These meetings are open to the public and community members are encouraged to attend.
