Article I Emergency Police Assistance
[Adopted 2-22-1989 by Ord. No. 89-8 (Ch. 18 of the 1982 Code)]
Pursuant to the provisions of N.J.S.A. 40A:14-156, the governing body of the Borough of Gibbsboro hereby agrees to the provision of reciprocal police assistance, as hereinafter prescribed, with those municipal corporations in Camden County and in those counties contiguous to Camden County which demonstrate their reciprocity by their enactment of this chapter.
It is hereby expressly provided that, upon committing such reciprocal police assistance, as hereinafter prescribed, no payment shall be required to be made by the assisted municipality to the municipality providing such assistance. This exclusion will include, but is not necessarily limited to, police salaries, cost of automobiles, motorcycles, use of police dogs and/or the cost of other equipment or expenses incurred by providing such assistance. This provision of nonpayment is in lieu of those rates of pay and rentals set forth in N.J.S.A. 40A:14-156 and as required by law.
Any of the concurring parties may withdraw from and terminate their part in this agreement at the end of any calendar year, provided that notice of such intention to terminate shall be given no later than November 1 of each year to each participant herein. Otherwise, the agreement shall remain in force on a yearly basis.
The Mutual Aid Operations Plan promulgated by the Camden County Chiefs of Police Association prescribing the specifics of emergency reciprocal police assistance is hereby incorporated by reference without inclusion herein. Such Mutual Aid Operations Plan will be periodically updated, but such updated version will not be enacted until distributed to each and every party hereto for their edification and whatever action they may deem appropriate.
The Chief of Police shall annually, and as soon after the end of the year as practicable, furnish the respective governing body with a summary report of services rendered and received with his comments and recommendations.
