RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider an Attorney Felony I Juvenile position (pay group 31) be reclassified to an Attorney V (pay group 35).  This will have a total FY cost, including benefits, of $12,713.31.  There will be no fiscal impact if the Commissioner's Court will allow the use of salary savings accumulated so far this year.
BACKGROUND
Juvenile prosecutors are now trying the same classification of cases as our Felony III - V attorneys.  Juvenile prosecutors, with the increase of youth gang violence, have multiple murders, aggravated assaults, engaging, and domestic violence cases pending on the docket.  CCPD has issued a list of the most violent and repeat offenders in our area, and approximately 70% are juvenile offenders.  Without a reclassification, it is impossible to entice experienced prosecutors to move into the juvenile positions as it would require a decrease in pay...less money to handle more complicated and egregious crimes.  Without the reclassification, the community is not protected as it should be.
