(This amendment provides $441,801 each year from the general fund to support the participation of Sheriffs' deputies and regional jail correctional officers in the master deputy program. The budget as introduced included approximately 23.5 percent of the amounts necessary to fully fund 655 sheriffs' deputies and regional jail officers for which program criteria allow participation. This amendment would increase the amounts provided to about 50 percent of the amounts necessary to align the salaries of these deputies and officers with others in their offices that also meet the criteria but are already funded for program participation. This represents the next step in the implementation of this career development program.)
