(This amendment updates the position count table 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 positions over the biennium. This increase is proposed in accordance with the provisions of § 15.2-1609.1 and is 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 72 provides funding to support the positions.)
