The Corrections Ombudsman serves as a liaison to the families, community, and others stakeholders needing assistance with information about inmates incarcerated at the Monterey County Jail. Additionally, the Corrections Ombudsman oversees the inmate grievance tracking and response system, answers requests from inmates, attorneys and families, coordinates responses to inmate, family, or community complaints.

The Ombudsman strives for excellence in service delivery by relying on the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST)’ s publication: Becoming an Exemplary Peace Officer, the Guide to Ethical Decision Making.
