FAIRFIELD — The Solano County 2013-14 grand jury released its first two reports of the year Thursday. They included a glowing review of jail conditions and mild concerns about the county’s whistleblower program.
The grand jury reported that the county’s whistleblower program would benefit from increased publicity about the program, including giving the program more prominence on the county website.
“Currently, there is minimal effort to inform the general public of the program other than a few posters and some handouts available only at (c)ounty facilities,” the report stated.
The report also recommended developing a way to determine if the costs of investigating complaints – there were about 40 last year – was more or less than the amount of savings from changes made after investigations.
The sole recommendation for jail operations was to keep up the good work.
