Independent Audit Information

In 2020, the Sebastopol City Council contracted Jerry Threet, former Director of the Independent Office of Law Enforcement Review and Outreach and Chair of the Sonoma County Commission on Human Rights, to complete and independent audit of the Sebastopol Police Department’s overall policies, practices, training, and organizational culture. On June 17, 2021, the Sebastopol City Council and community received an independent review report from Mr. Threet, who presented recommendations based on his independent review.
