Monitors of KCSO appointed to oversee settlement agreement with Justice Department

Slide Public Safety

Two monitors have been appointed to make sure the Kern County Sheriff’s Office sticks to the terms of a settlement agreement it reached with the California Department of Justice over civil rights complaints late last year.

Both parties jointly appointed Joseph Brann and Angela Wolf, as co-monitors. Brann has previously overseen the reforms required by stipulated agreements in Riverside and Maywood and has served as a monitor in other jurisdictions. Wolf currently serves as the monitor for a settlement agreement between the U.S. Department of Justice and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. A KCSO news release called her a highly respected researcher and practitioner in using community-based data to improve the quality of justice system strategies and practices.
