IOLERO is a civilian review agency that provides objective, independent audit and investigation of Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office complaints, proposes policy recommendations to the Sheriff’s Office, and strives to strengthen the relationship between the Sheriff’s Office and the community. The County is seeking a Director who inspires trust by acting with integrity, operates within a framework of public transparency, and demonstrates an understanding of and respect for the culture and diversity of Sonoma County.
