• Commemoration of 2017National Crime Victims’ Rights Week April 7 Noon-1:00

     During the week of April 2 through April 8, 2017, crime victims and survivors and those who serve them, will join together across America to promote victims’ rights and services, and to educate our communities about the devastating impact of crime on victims, neighborhoods, schools, and our nation as a whole. 

    Since 1978, the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office Victims of Crime Unit has worked diligently with the victims of crime to ensure that they are aware of victim assistance and compensation programs that can help them cope with the aftermath of crime. In 2016, the unit provided over 9,500 mandated services to 2,500 new crime victims in Monterey County. 

    The 2017 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week not only honors the victims of crime, but the many agencies that assist them as well. 

    Please join members of our community in honoring victims of crime at the Monterey County Government Center, Board of Supervisors’ Chambers, located at 168 W. Alisal Street, Salinas. The event will feature Mark and Jenifer McLaughlin as the Inspirational Speakers, a slide show in honor of those murdered in Monterey County; an invitation to survivors of homicide to announce the name of their loved one and the release of doves in memory of all victims of crime. 

    For additional information, please contact Victim Witness Program Manager Pamela Patterson at (831) 755-5072.

  • Beach Report Card


    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
