"P. The appropriation in this item includes $3,094,378 the first year and $773,594 the second year from the general fund to support the cost of providing reimbursement of overtime pay for sheriffs' deputies and regional jail officers incurred during a period when a State of Emergency and Public Health Emergency has been declared by the Governor. Such funding may reimburse overtime pay expenses incurred for extended periods of oversight by sheriffs' deputies of individuals subject to a temporary detention order, and incurred due to overtime work required by periods of absence due to illness or quarantine of sheriffs' deputies and regional jail officers due to a health pandemic.”


(This amendment provides $3.1 million GF the first year and $773,594 GF the second year to reimburse localities for overtime pay expenses incurred by sheriffs’ deputies and regional jails due to excessive staff absences as a result of the health pandemic and time spent in the service of Temporary Detention Orders while hospitals and mental health providers are unable to meet time requirements and provide bed space for individuals due to space limitations from the pandemic, based upon projected costs through September 30, 2021.)
