(This amendment provides funding for 244 additional deputy sheriffs and regional jail officers to provide one additional correctional officer in a jail for every five inmates being housed above its operational capacity. The amendment targets the 13 local and regional jails that are the most severly overcrowded, meaning facilities having inmate populations greater than 100 percent more than their rated capacity for each of the last six months. A companion amendment provides the positions necessary for this funding.)
