The Latino Advisory Committee works collaboratively with the Sheriff to address and discuss issues that involve the Latino community and the Sheriff's Office as well as public safety in general. Members provide honest and specific input into decisions the Sheriff makes that do, or may, affect not only the Latino community but all citizens of Sonoma County. Additionally, members serve as a way to share information, both from the Sheriff to the Latino community, and from the Latino community to the Sheriff. The Committee meets directly with the Sheriff four times a year and communicates often with the Sheriff on issues that arise between the scheduled meetings.
Members are selected by the Committee itself, not the Sheriff. Members of the public who are interested in being on the Latino Advisory Committee should contact Wendy Hoffman at 565-3917.
