Community advisory_banner_500.png


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. These meetings are open to the public and community members are encouraged to attend. 

Community Engagement Meetings

The Independent Office of Law Enforcement Review and Outreach (IOLERO) strives to strengthen the relationship between the Sheriff’s Office and the community, by auditing complaints against the Sheriff’s Office and through community engagement efforts.

In order to make IOLERO’s services more accessible to the community-at-large, we will be holding our future community outreach meetings in different areas throughout the county.

Please join us to learn more about our future plans for IOLERO.
