LAW ENFORCEMENT REVIEW AND OUTREACH
Presented by Jerry Threet, Director of the Independent Office of Law Enforcement Review and Outreach (IOLERO)
IOLERO was established by the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors in response to public demand for greater accountability and transparency in the practice of law enforcement in our area. Mr. Threet, a licensed attorney since 1988 and a member of the National Association for Civilian Oversight of Law Enforcement (NACOLE), was chosen to lead this new effort. In the first two years, along with a Community Advisory Council, IOLERO has worked to resolve citizen complaints against the Sheriff’s Office and to recommend changes to Sheriff’s Office policies, particularly in the area of immigration status and enforcement.
Please come to learn more about how this office works with the public and the Sheriff’s Office to build community trust. Questions and concerns are invited too!
