[HISTORY: Adopted by the City Council of the City of Roseville 2-28-1984 by Ord. No. 895 as Ch. 47 of the 1984 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Police Department — See Ch. 7, Sec. 7.9.
Civil service for police and fire fighters — See Ch. 16.
The Chief of Police, with the approval of the City Manager, shall appoint special patrol officers to be known as "reserve police officers," in such numbers as the Police Chief deems necessary, subject to such rules and regulations as the Police Chief shall promulgate.
Such officers may be called to active duty at any time by the Police Chief or, in his or her absence, by a command officer of the Roseville Police Department. Such officers shall be under the direction, supervision and control of the Police Chief.
Reserve police officers shall wear such badge, dress and insignia and be equipped in such manner so as to properly discharge their duties in accordance with the Police Chief's directions.
The Police Chief shall promulgate rules relating to qualifications, appointment and removal of reserve police officers and shall fix minimum and maximum ages of said officers. The maximum age may be waived for former or retired police officers or for persons with military experience.
[Added 5-28-2002 by Ord. No. 1165]
All reserve officers are required to obtain and have a current concealed pistol license permit. It is the responsibility of the reserve officer to comply with all of the requirements of the Concealed Pistol Licensing Act, as amended. If a reserve officer does not have a valid concealed pistol license permit, he or she will not be called to duty until they obtain one.
When called to duty, a reserve officer shall be in full uniform and carry his or her weapon in a holster on a duty belt where others can easily observe it. Coats or other outer clothing must not conceal the weapon, and at all times the weapon must remain in plain view. Under the meaning of this section, a reserve officer is only authorized to act as a reserve officer if he or she has been officially scheduled to work a designated function or event as provided by the Chief of Police or his designee. The Department will take no responsibility for any actions undertaken by a reserve officer carrying a concealed pistol when that officer is not under the Department's jurisdiction, direction, or supervision. The reserve officer at all times is required to comply with the Concealed Pistol Licensing Act, as amended. A reserve officer has no greater rights under the Concealed Pistol Licensing Act than any other ordinary citizen and must abide by all restrictions contained in the Act.
Police officers shall serve without compensation except where the City Council shall have made provision and an appropriation for a particular duty being performed or actual expenses incurred, as approved by the Chief of Police.
[Amended 7-27-1999 by Ord. No. 1125]
A reserve police officer, while acting under the direction of the Police Chief during a regular assigned tour of duty, is an employee of the City and is entitled to receive worker's compensation benefits. The average weekly earning shall be deemed to be such amount as will qualify the reserve police officer and/or his or her dependents for benefits based on the average wage of an active duty patrol officer on duty in the City under the Michigan Worker's Compensation Law at the date of injury.
[Amended 7-27-1999 by Ord. No. 1125]
It shall be unlawful for a reserve police officer to exercise his or her authority or to wear the uniform or insignia or to display the badge or identification card in an attempt to exercise his or her authority except during the performance of actual authorized police duty.
Any reserve police officer who willfully neglects or refuses to respond for assignment or duty when called, under such rules and regulations as promulgated by the Police Chief, may be subject to suspension or dismissal by the Police Chief.
It shall be unlawful for any person not duly appointed and sworn in as a reserve police officer to impersonate such officer or to wear, carry or display the badge, identification card, dress or insignia for reserve police officers.
The services of any reserve police officer may be terminated by the Police Chief at any time. Likewise, any reserve police officer may resign at any time by notification in writing to the Police Chief.
Neither the civil service or retirement laws of the City relating to regular full-time employees nor the civil service or retirement laws of the state applicable to police officers shall apply to any reserve police officer of the city.
