Compensation Board


Page 53, after line 51, insert:

"Q. 1. The Compensation Board shall report on the allocation of funds first appropriated in Chapter 2, 2022 Special Session I, to increase compensation for sworn officers, including specific measures of effectiveness that indicate the degree to which these salary adjustments reduce the number of departures and vacancies. A report is due to the Governor, the Chairs of the House Appropriation and Senate Finance and Appropriation Committees, and the Director, Department of Planning and Budget no later than October 15, 2023.

2. The Compensation Board shall report on retention data for deputies with law enforcement duties compared to deputies without law enforcement duties, including information on local salary supplements. The report shall include information on the distribution of time allocated for law enforcement, court security and jail responsibilities in localities in which the sheriff has law enforcement authority. The report shall also include data on the degree to which individual deputies are moved across the different responsibilities or assigned to one specific responsibility. The report shall be provided to such committees and agencies no later than October 15, 2024."


(This amendment provides language restoring a reporting requirement from the 2022-2024 biennium. Chapter 2, 2022 Special Session I, provided a compensation increase for deputy sheriffs and directed the Compensation Board to report on the allocation and effectiveness of the funding by October 15, 2023. The language adds a reporting requirement related to retention of deputies with law enforcement duties due October 15, 2024.)
