(This amendment adds $336,320 the first year and $366,893 the second year from the general fund to hire security personnel at the Commonwealth Center for Children and Adolescents (CCCA). Western State Hospital (WSH) and the CCCA have shared a campus and numerous support and ancillary services, including security and telecommunications and network services. WSH has a new facility, which opened October 2013. The new campus is no longer located adjacent to the CCCA and is several miles away, consequently the security staff at WSH will no longer be located close enough for appropriate emergency response.)
