Compensation Board

Page 51, line 57, after "weekly." insert: "Each local or regional jail that receives funding from the Compensation Board shall use the Virginia Crime Codes (VCC) in identifying and describing offenses for persons arrested and/or detained in local and regional jails in Virginia."

(This amendment requires local and regional jails to use the Virginia Crime Codes in identifying the offenses for which offenders are incarcerated in jails in Virginia. This is intended to facilitate the analysis of cases in which there is a misdemeanor offense. This type of analysis is required in order for the Commonwealth to assess the correctional bed space impact of proposed legislation in which a misdemeanor offense is involved.)
