[ARCHIVED] Sheriff Idleburg Introduces the Criminal Justice Citizen’s Council

Sheriff John Idleburg and the Lake County Sheriff’s Office are pleased to announce a new collaborative partnership with the Lake County Community: Criminal Justice Citizen’s Council.

The Criminal Justice Citizen’s Council will involve stakeholders from numerous sectors of our community including law-enforcement administration, local and countywide elected officials, community service/advocacy organizations, faith-based community leaders, Lake County justice partners, and more.

The Council will meet quarterly, addressing important community topics such as: 

•    Strengthening community-law-enforcement partnerships

•    Ensuring all community sectors have a voice in the justice process

•    Collaborative and innovative approach to justice reform 

•    Examining increasing levels of incarceration, including incarceration of those with mental health disorders

•    Examining disparities in the judicial system including people of color and those in other protected classes

Sheriff John Idleburg said, “We derive public trust and our authority through the community we serve.  Therefore, it is imperative we include all sectors of our community when looking at any criminal justice reforms.  Changes and decisions made in Lake County should always be driven by the Lake County community, and I’m proud we’ve organized a large group of interested stakeholders to take part in this Council.”

The public is welcome to attend meetings.
