(This amendment provides funding from the general fund to allocate 259 additional sworn law enforcement deputy positions in sheriffs’ offices statewide in the first year and an additional 16 sworn law enforcement positions in the second year, for a total of 275 new positions over the biennium. The increases are requested in accordance with the provisions of § 15.2-1609.1 and are based on the actual population growth between the 2019 and 2020 population estimates prepared by the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service at the University of Virginia. A companion amendment to Item 79 updates the position count table for these new positions.)
