Trust. State law does not require any sort of a communication with the public after OII decisions. Such DA decisions are communicated in many ways: press conferences, public letters to the LEAs, coroner’s inquests, etc. In the past, the Santa Clara County DA’s Office examined OIIs using a secret grand jury, a process which – by law – cannot be reported out to the public unless there is a charge. DA Rosen revamped the process with the belief that maximum transparency is the only way for the public to assess the validity and integrity of these vital cases and decisions.
