RD520 - FY 2016 Jail Cost Report Annual Jail Revenues and Expenditures Report (Including Canteen & Other Auxiliary Funds) - November 1, 2017
*This report was replaced in its entirety by the Compensation Board on December 15, 2017.
The FY 2016 Jail Cost Report is a compilation of revenue and expenditure data presented to show inmate cost per day and the percent of funding that the Commonwealth, Federal and Local governments, and other sources contribute to the operation of each jail. Debt service paid by the locality is also detailed as a separate item.
The 2017 Virginia Acts of Assembly, Item 76, Paragraph K. requires accounting for all inmate monies and the reporting thereof. Reported inmate monies include canteen, medical co-payments, telephone commissions, investment/interest and other inmate collections/work release revenues and expenditures.
During FY 2017, fifty-nine (59) local and regional jails and jail farms were able to send their FY 2016 information through the mail or electronically. During this time, Compensation Board staff conducted one (1) on-site visit of a local jail for the collection/verification of their respective data.
Once Compensation Board staff determined that all revenues and expenses had been reported according to the Jail Cost Report specifications, the respective Sheriff/ Regional Jail/Jail Farm Superintendent and Chairman/Chief Financial Officer signed a certification attesting to the accuracy of the data presented (Appendix G).
