Item 73 #1c

Compensation Board

Page 61, after line 3, insert:
“S. Effective July 1, 2015, the Executive Secretary of the Compensation Board is authorized to withhold reimbursements due to the locality for sheriff and jail expenses upon notification from the Superintendent of State Police that there is reason to believe that any local law enforcement agency is not registering sex offenders as required in §9.1-903, Code of Virginia. Upon subsequent notification by the Superintendent that the local law enforcement agency is compliant with the requirements of §9.1-903, Code of Virginia, the Executive Secretary shall make reimbursement of withheld funding due to the locality in the same fiscal year in which the local law enforcement agency comes into compliance.”

(This amendment authorizes the Compensation Board to withhold sheriff and jail funding from a locality if the Superintendent of State Police provides notification that the sheriff's office of that locality is not complying with the requirements of transmittal of information to the Sex Offender and Crimes Against Minors Registry.)
