(This amendment provides additional funding for the Comprehensive Community Corrections Act for Local-Responsible Offenders (CCCA) (§53.1-180 et seq.), and the Pretrial Services Act (PSA) (§19.2-152.2 et seq.), Code of Virginia. Many localities are mandated by the CCCA and PSA to develop locally operated community corrections and pretrial programs but have been unable to do so due to funding limitations. The programs currently in operation have experienced substantial increases in their caseloads since 1995. This amendment provides funding to establish CCCA and PSA programs in those localities that are mandated to participate because they have accepted State reimbursement for local jail construction projects and provides additional resources for addressing staff-to-offender and defendant ratios in the existing programs.)
