Warren County Will Act as ‘Fiscal Agent’ for New Criminal Justice Academy
24 March 2017 News
Following a Tuesday, March 21, budget work session briefing by Human Resources Director Jodi Spittler and Sheriff Daniel McEathron, the Warren County Board of Supervisors authorized the County to become the fiscal agent for the new regional criminal justice academy.
Impacts on County staff of assuming certain financial oversight and staff responsibility was described as minimal. The Skyline Regional Criminal Justice Academy will employ just 4 full-time and 3 part-time people.
They will be Academy, not County employees. However, they will follow County payroll procedures and will be included in the County’s group health and dental insurance.
The Academy will pay the County $7,500 annually for the services.
The Academy will be constructed on 18 acres of EDA property at the end of Progress Drive in the Happy Creek Industrial Park off Shenandoah Shores Road. Warren County Sheriff McEathron will act as the Academy’s director. 14 of the 15 Northern Valley jurisdictions have been involved in separating from the Rappahannock Regional Academy since 2015.
