Policy Changes

Arrest and Jail Alternatives

Funding is provided to continue the Arrest and Jail Alternatives Grant Program and to add an assessment component to inform future investments. In the 2019-21 biennium, the program was funded ongoing at the Health Care Authority, but one-time funding was provided to the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs (WASPC). This funding provides resources for WASPC to continue to partner with HCA. (General Fund - State)

Body Camera Grants

Body cameras have become an expected and important aspect of law enforcement records preservation, but many law enforcement agencies do not have the capacity to absorb the cost to establish and run a body camera program. Funding is provided for grants to law enforcement agencies to support equipment purchase and video storage costs for body camera programs. (General Fund - State)

Basic Law Enforcement Academy

Demand for Basic Law Enforcement Academy (BLEA) courses continues to exceed what is available in the 10 classes funded in the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission's base budget. Funding is provided for five additional BLEA classes per fiscal year to keep up with the pace of recruitment. Increasing the number of classes from 10 to 15 will provide training for 150 additional students annually. (General Fund - Private/Local, General Fund - Local, General Fund - State)

Deadly Force Data Collection

Washington does not have a centralized mechanism to collect information about incidents involving law enforcement use of deadly force. Funding is provided to establish a deadly force data collection program with the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs, consistent with the report from the Office of the Attorney General on implementing deadly force data collection. (General Fund - State)

Eliminate School Mapping Program

The Statewide First Responder Building Information Mapping System was created in 2003 as a tool for law enforcement to use in response to active shooter events at schools. Since that time, the approach taken by law enforcement in these situations has changed and this system is no longer useful in its intended capacity. Funding for the school mapping program is eliminated. (WA Auto Theft Prevention Auth Acct - State, General Fund - State)

Helmet Distribution Program

Funding is provided for implementation of the Helmet Distribution Program. It was initially funded by the 2020 Legislature, but implementation was delayed due to COVID-19. (General Fund - State)

Law Enforcement Behavioral Health

Funding is provided for the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs to establish a behavioral health support and suicide prevention program for law enforcement officers. This program will begin with grants to three pilot locations with the goal of expansion in the future and will leverage access to mental health professionals, critical stress management, and resiliency training. (General Fund - State)

Mental Heath Field Response

These funds will expand the Mental Health Field Response Teams Program administered by the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs. This funding will expand the program into regions under phase 2 of the Trueblood settlement agreement ($2.0 million per year) and provide for further expansion into non-Trueblood regions of the state ($2.0 million per year). (General Fund - State)

Sexual Assault Kit Initiative

Funding is provided to continue investigations under the Sexual Assault Kit Initiative Project administered by the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs. This funding was provided by the 2020 Legislature, but expenditures have been slower than anticipated due to COVID-19. Funding for this purpose is shifted to the 2021-23 biennium. (General Fund - State)

Pension Adjustments, nonrate

This funds the potential impact of Department of Retirement Systems request legislation on pension service credit and benefit calculation. It will prevent budget reductions such as temporary layoffs from negatively affecting employee retirement benefits. (General Fund - State)

State Employee Benefits

Health insurance funding is provided for state employees who are not represented by a union, who are covered by a bargaining agreement that is not subject to financial feasibility determination, or who are not part of the coalition of unions for health benefits. The insurance funding rate is $988 per employee per month for fiscal year 2022 and $1,018 per employee per month for fiscal year 2023. (General Fund - State)

WFSE General Government

This adjustment reflects the impact of the 2021-23 collective bargaining agreement. (General Fund - State)

Temporary Layoffs and Other Savings

This item reflects savings achieved from temporary layoffs or similar actions. (General Fund - State, General Fund - Local, General Fund - Private/Local)

Rep Employee Health Benefits

This provides health insurance funding for the master agreement for employee benefits as part of a coalition of unions. The insurance funding rate is $988 per employee per month for fiscal year 2022 and $1,018 per employee per month for fiscal year 2023. (General Fund - State)

Non-Rep General Wage Increase

This reflects savings from the cancellation of the July 1, 2020 general wage increase for some non-represented, non-classified employees. (General Fund - State, General Fund - Private/Local, General Fund - Local)

Archives/Records Management

Adjustments are made to reflect each agency’s anticipated share of charges from the Department of Labor and Industries for workers’ compensation (General Fund - State)

Audit Services

Adjustments are made for each agency’s anticipated cost of audits performed by the State Auditor’s Office. (General Fund - State)

Legal Services

Adjustments are made for each agency’s anticipated cost of legal services provided by the Attorney General’s Office. Because legal services expenditures are based on consumption, funding provided in the central service model is not all inclusive. (General Fund - State)

CTS Central Services

Adjustments are made to reflect each agency’s anticipated share of charges for Microsoft 365 G5 licenses contracted for state agencies by the Consolidated Technology Services agency. This contract allows the state to achieve economies of scale and administrative efficiencies in the management of licenses. (General Fund - State)

DES Central Services

Adjustments are made to reflect each agency’s anticipated share of charges from the Department of Enterprise Services (DES) for campus rent, utilities, parking, and contracts; capital project surcharges; financing cost recovery; public and historic facilities; real estate services; risk management services; personnel service rates; the Perry Street child care center; small agency services; and the department’s enterprise applications. (General Fund - State)

OFM Central Services

Adjustments are made to reflect each agency’s anticipated share of charges for existing statewide financial applications, One Washington, and other central services provided by the Office of Financial Management. (General Fund - State)

Self-Insurance Liability Premium

Adjustments are made to reflect each agency's share of actuarily projected costs of the Self-Insurance Liability Account. This includes adjustments to existing funding levels as well as enhancements for anticipated liabilities in the 2021-23 biennium. (General Fund - State)
