(This amendment adds $1.0 million GF each year to create five new jail diversion programs to support the development of law enforcement drop-off centers. Drop-off centers provide an alternative to incarceration for people with serious mental illness by ensuring prompt assessment and appropriate treatment for individuals picked up by local law enforcement officials. Funding will be targeted to programs that have implemented Crisis Intervention Teams pursuant to § 9.1-102, 187-190 of the Code of Virginia and have undergone planning to implement drop-off centers.)
