A Resolution to Authorize the Clarke-Fauquier-Frederick-Winchester Regional Adult Detention Center (“the Regional Jail”) to Provide Virginia Law Enforcement Retirement System (LEOS) Benefits to Sworn Correctional Officers as Authorized by Section 51.1-138 of the Code of Virginia

 

Topic Description:

The Regional Jail Board has requested permission from its participating jurisdictions to endow its sworn correctional officers with LEOS benefits as authorized by Section 51.1-138 of the Code of Virginia.  Virginia Law Enforcement Retirement System (LEOS) benefits provide for full, unreduced retirement and a post retirement supplement at age 50 for those sworn officers with at least 25 years of creditable service, or at age 60 for those with at least five years of creditable service.  LEOS benefits are routinely provided by regional jails throughout Virginia, and are an effective tool in recruiting and retaining highly qualified and competent sworn officers.

 

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis:

The annual cost to Fauquier County is $51,300;  however, this amount has already been anticipated by the Budget Office in the FY 2006 Budget Submission.
