    Discussion: Regarding item a., Col. Powell explained that the Detective Prosser was in deployment and they waited until he returned to give him the bonus he had earned, which fell in the following fiscal year. The department awarded all employees $2,000 in bonuses. Mr. Prosser got $1,400 the previous year, but he was not in the country, so ISP is requesting to give him $3,400, the total of both bonuses.

    Mr. Hurst asked if the $1,400 bonus was based on performance.

    Col. Powell noted that Mr. Prosser exceeded performance standards, and then was deployed for 8 months.

    Ms. Revier asked if the bonus is based on a calendar year evaluation.

    Col. Powell confirmed that yes, it is January 1 through December 31 of each calendar year.

    Discussion: Regarding item b., Col. Powell commented that this has been in place previous years. It will only be used if ISP has salary savings from the forensic program.

    Discussion: Mr. Hurst asked how many scientists there are.

    Col. Powell responded that there are 30 scientists total that do casework.

    Ms. Revier asked if the backlog is expected to be caught up in July.

    Col. Powell said each discipline has a backlog. He noted that in toxicology, they are still training people and their work is more time sensitive.
