Year-End Reports


2023 was a year of remarkable progress in the effort to have independent oversight of the Sheriff’s Office. Our Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to create a new Commission, which is a major first step toward oversight. Fixin’ SMC also helped create the California Coalition for Sheriff Oversight (CCSO), a coalition of grassroots activists from eight counties as well as the ACLU of Northern California and the CA League of Women Voters Sheriff Oversight working group.


Fixin’ SMC is pleased to announce our first year-end report, covering the accomplishments and milestones of our first full year as an organization. We’re proud of how far we’ve come, and we know we have a lot more work ahead of us to ensure that oversight of the Sheriff’s Office is effective, independent, and a true benefit to our county.
