Grand Jury Finds Major Problems Within Behavioral Health Division – July 30, 2019

The Sonoma County Grand Jury, a group of concerned volunteers, serves each year to investigate public complaints and other concerns they identify about county government.

In its yearly report, the Grand Jury found that the Behavioral Health Division of the county was not only over budget but lacked policies and procedures for fiscal responsibility. Sonoma West Editor Laura Hagar Rush recently wrote about the Grand Jury report. In the second of three “reporter’s notebook” debriefs, she told KRCB News Director Steve Mencher about the Grand Jury’s findings and recommendations concerning Behavioral Health.

Laura Hagar Rush will join us again tomorrow to talk about other issues in the Grand Jury report. For more visit
