(This amendment provides funding for the development of a limited pretrial services program to be operated by the Portsmouth Sheriff's Office to focus on drug related offenders. The City of Portsmouth is pursuing a federal drug court grant for implementation in fiscal year 2000 and a core group of professionals that has been planning and researching the federal grant has identified the lack of pretrial services as a gap in the local system that must be filled i order for the proposed drug court program to be successful.)
