Grand Jury Information


Welcome. You have just assumed a most important role in the administration of justice in your community.

Service on the grand jury is one way in which you, as a responsible citizen, can directly participate in government. The grand jury has the responsibility of safeguarding individuals from ungrounded prosecution while simultaneously protecting the public from crime and criminals.

The purpose of this handbook from the Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia is to help you meet these responsibilities and be knowledgeable about your duties and limitations. Your service and acceptance of your duties as a serious commitment to the community is greatly appreciated.
