    Public comment

    Public comment

    Members of the public may address the Commission for up to three (3) minutes on any matter within the Commission’s jurisdiction. The Commission will hear public comment on all agenda items before, or during discussion of, the item and will also hear public comment on items not listed (see Agenda, Item 2).

    The period of time allowed for public comment may be modified by the Chair in the interest of fairness to all those wishing to address the Commission.  Speakers shall address their remarks to the Commission as a whole and not to individual Commissioners or Department personnel. The lack of a response by the Commissioners or Department personnel does not necessarily constitute agreement with, or support of, statements made during public comment.

    In addition to in-person public comment, the Juvenile Probation Commission (JPC) will hear up to 20-minutes of remote public comment on each agenda item.  The JPC will hear remote public comment on each item in the order that commenters add themselves to the queue to comment on the item.  Because of the 20-minute time limit, it is possible that not every person in the queue will have an opportunity to provide remote public comment.  Remote public comment from people who have received an accommodation due to disability (as described below) will not count toward the 20-minute limit.

    Public comment may be made:

    1. In person at the meeting.
    2. Remotely per the directions at top of agenda and on the JPD website.
    3. By email to  JUV-ProbationCommission@sfgov.org if received no later than 5:00pm the Tuesday before the meeting.
    4. By leaving voicemail at 415-753-7556. Comments submitted no later than 5:00pm the Tuesday before the meeting will be read into the record by the Secretary during the teleconference meeting and will be treated as a substitute to providing public comment by phone during the meeting.

    NOTE: Persons who submit by written public comment or by voice mail in advance on an agenda item will not be permitted to also provide public comment on the same agenda item(s) by phone or in-person during the meeting.
