Title: County officers: sheriffs.
Author: Reginald Byron Jones-Sawyer Sr.
AB 1090, as amended, Jones-Sawyer. County officers: sheriffs. Existing law requires the Legislature to provide for an elected county sheriff and provides for the duties of the sheriff. Existing law requires the board of supervisors to supervise all county officers, except as provided.Existing law provides for the removal of public officers for willful or corrupt misconduct in office. Existing law provides that an accusation in writing against any officer of a district, county, or city for willful or corrupt misconduct in office may be presented by the grand jury of the county for, or in, which the officer accused is elected or appointed. Existing law requires that the court pronounce judgment that the officer be removed from office upon a conviction and at the time appointed by the court.This bill would authorize the board of supervisors to remove a sheriff from office for cause, as defined, by a 4/5 vote, after the sheriff is served with a written statement of the alleged grounds for removal and the sheriff is provided a reasonable opportunity to be heard regarding an explanation or defense at a removal proceeding. The bill would authorize the board of supervisors to establish procedures for a removal proceeding. The bill would require that these provisions not be applied in a manner that interferes with the constitutional functions of a sheriff.
