Throughout each Grand Jury's one-year term (which corresponds with the County's fiscal year, July 1st - June 30th) the various Grand Jury committees perform investigations of different government agencies and other entities and publish reports of their findings and recommendations.

These reports are made available to the general public and media as follows:

1) During the year, the individual reports are released and published on the Web site as Early Releases.  Elected County officials are required by law to respond to each recommendation contained in these report(s) within 60 days of issuance; other County entities must respond to each recommendation within 90 days.  These responses are published with the Early Releases soon after they are received.

2) At the end of each Grand Jury's term, the Grand Jury issues its Final Report to the Presiding Judge.  This Final Report contains the committee reports/responses plus general information about the Grand Jury.  This report is also published on the Web site.  A hard copy of the Final Report is available at the Beale Branch of the Kern County Library.
