"M. Notwithstanding the provisions of Item 76, paragraph F. of this act, any new court services deputy positions established in Item 76, paragraph B.1. of this act for Sheriffs shall be allocated by the Compensation Board first to ensure a minimum of two deputy sheriff positions are provided in each sheriff's office in the Commonwealth.  Positions allocated to meet these minimum requirements shall be allocated by the Compensation Board upon request of the Sheriff in priority of need order in accordance with established staffing standards."

(The Sheriff's offices in the cities of Buena Vista, Norton, Falls Church and Emporia each have only one Compensation Board funded deputy sheriff and are unable to meet court security, service of process and other duties in a timely manner. The funding and language provided in this amendment, in conjunction with a companion amendment for positions to Item 76, will provide for minimum established staffing levels for Sheriffs and a total of four positions for the affected offices.)
