Jail processing fee. Allows any sheriff's department, regional jail, or police department that is performing jail processing activities to receive the $25 processing fee that is collected by the clerk following conviction as part of the court costs to defray costs of processing arrested persons into local jails. Currently, the fee may go only to sheriff's offices and regional jails, but in some localities the local police department, rather than the sheriff's office, is processing arrested individuals into jail.
