B. Out of the amounts for Financial Assistance to Local Law Enforcement Officials, no expenditures shall be made to provide security devices such as magnetometers in standard use in major metropolitan airports. Personnel expenditures for operation of such equipment incidental to the duties of courtroom and courthouse security deputies may be authorized, provided that no additional expenditures for personnel shall be approved for the principal purpose of operating these devices.


C. Notwithstanding the provisions of § 53.1-120, or any other section of the Code of Virginia, unless a judge provides the sheriff with a written order stating that a substantial security risk exists in a particular case, no courtroom security deputies may be ordered for civil cases, not more than one deputy may be ordered for criminal cases in a district court, and not more than two deputies may be ordered for criminal cases in a circuit court. In complying with such orders for additional security, the sheriff may consider other deputies present in the courtroom as part of his security force.


D. Out of the amounts for Financial Assistance to Local Law Enforcement Officials $4,448,316 the first year and $21,487,505 the second year shall be held in reserve to provide staff required by the construction of additional jail beds. The Director of the Department of Planning and Budget shall allot these funds at the request of the Compensation Board only if the contracted completion date for the new beds is within the 1996-98 biennium and only for the purpose prescribed herein.


E. Consistent with the provisions of Paragraph B. of Item 71, the Board shall allocate the additional jail deputies provided in this appropriation using a ratio of one jail deputy for every 3.0 beds of operational capacity. Operational capacity shall be determined by the Department of Corrections. No additional deputy sheriffs shall be provided from this appropriation to a local jail in which the present staffing exceeds this ratio unless the jail is overcrowded. Overcrowding for these purposes shall be defined as when the average annual daily population exceeds the operational capacity. In those jails experiencing overcrowding, the Board shall allocate one additional jail deputy for every five average annual daily prisoners above operational capacity.


F. Two-thirds of the salaries set by the Compensation Board of medical, treatment and inmate classification positions approved by the Compensation Board for local correctional facilities shall be paid out of this appropriation. The Compensation Board shall provide reimbursement for these positions in the same manner in which reimbursement is provided for all other Compensation Board positions funded in Sheriff's offices and Regional Jails.


G. The Compensation Board shall allocate positions for alternative incarceration programs approved pursuant to Item 78, Paragraph F of this act, at a ratio of one position for every 16 inmates in such programs.


H. The Compensation Board may, upon request of the sheriff or jail superintendent, provide reimbursement for vehicle expenses in lieu of reimbursement on a mileage basis.
