Community Protection Team

The Community Protection Team partners with other County departments, as well as other regulatory authorities, to protect the health, safety, and wellbeing of County residents by enforcing the County Ordinance Code and State law where either a County department serves as the local enforcement agency for the State of California or where independently empowered to do so under State law.  Attorneys on the Team advise County departments regarding potential enforcement actions, coordinate investigations, review administrative complaints, and administratively and civilly prosecute responsible parties through trial and appeal.  Issues on which the attorneys work include substandard housing, consumer protection, workers’ rights, and environmental protection.
