(This amendment provides funding for a pilot project that provides pretrial investigators to the City of Richmond for use by the Magistrate's Office in bail hearings. The investigators prepare background reports that include information on defendants' employment, family history, drug use and criminal record. These reports are crucial to the ability of the Magistrate's Office to make informed decisions regarding the commitment of a defendant to jail or release on bail.)
