(This amendment provides funding for an additional 153 emergency corrections officer positions in local and regional jails that are severely overcrowded, which are defined by the Compensation Board as facilities that have an average daily population over the past 12 months in excess of 100 percent above their rated capacity. The positions are needed to meet the standard for jail overcrowding of one officer for every five inmates above operational capacity. A companion amendment to Item 66 provides the positions for this amendment.)
