Sheriff's Advisory Team

The Sheriff’s Advisory Team is a representative group of volunteer members who live and work in Santa Cruz County. The advisory team meets with Santa Cruz County Sheriff Jim Hart monthly and discusses law enforcement issues that are impacting our neighborhoods and rural areas.

The Sheriff’s Advisory Team consists of community members from all walks of life including residents from all five Board of Supervisors districts, residents of each of the four cities, and people working in the health, treatment, faith, education and business professions.

Recruitment for the Sheriff's Advisory Team is conducted each year in late Summer with 1-year appointments beginning in the Fall. For more information or to place your name on an interest list, contact Dalissa Escobar at (831) 454-7618 or email
