Sen. Glick’s SB 20
would give Sheriffs more flexibility in the purposes for which they can spend money in their extradition funds. Currently certain money from forfeited bail goes into the Sheriff’s extradition fund. The Sheriff is limited to using that money to offset the costs of extraditing criminal defendants. This legislation would rename it the Sheriff’s extradition and assistance fund and could also be used for training and equipping officers, and for providing law enforcement services.
