#KnowAlameda
County

The Justice Reinvestment Coalition of Alameda County (JRC/AC) is launching a political education campaign #KnowAlamedaCounty to educate youth and the Bay Area population to actively participate in local and national government decisions. We want to get Alameda County  residents excited to make a difference and for them to make decisions based on adequate knowledge of government regulations. Our goal is to empower the people of Alameda County, particularly youth, to get involved and be aware of the positive changes they can incite within their communities. 

 

Our political education campaign provides background information on elected officials and how Bay Area residents can get involved. That means giving marginalized communities a voice through knowledge and self-empowerment.

District Attorney

 

One of the many roles of the District Attorney is to decide whether to charge someone of a crime, and if so, for what crime. 

County Sheriff

 

The County Sheriff oversees the county jail, patrols unincorporated areas of the county, and is the corner, among many other things.

The Board of Supervisors oversees the county budget, adopts an annual budget, and appoints many important positions in the Alameda County government.

Probation Chief

 

The probation department oversees people coming home from incarceration, as well as juvenile justice.

Public Defender

 

The Public Defender is the "people's attorney;" they advocate on behalf of someone being tried at court.

California judges have enormous influence on the outcome of someone's case in court.
