Where another municipality, however, is charging higher hourly rates for police officer compensation to an outside employer than those set forth in Subsection A(7)(h) of this section, that other municipality shall be required to remit payment to the Township pursuant to the terms of its contract with the outside employer at the higher hourly rate of compensation for police officers. Under no circumstances shall another municipality remit payment to the Township at hourly rates and other administrative costs and fees lower than those adopted pursuant to Subsection A(7)(h) of this section.
(f) 
Execution of contracts. The Municipal Clerk is authorized to execute the contracts and contractually bind the Township for off-duty employment on behalf of the Township pursuant to and in accordance with the terms set forth in this subsection.
(g) 
Eligibility and scheduling. The Chief of Police or his/her designee shall assign a police officer or police officers as scheduling officer(s) to organize, regulate, and oversee all off-duty employment details for eligible police officers. The Chief of Police or the designated officer shall ensure compliance with the following:
[1] 
The police officers permitted to provide off-duty employment are in good standing with the Police Department. Police officers who are on medical or other leave due to sickness, temporary disability, or an on-duty injury shall not be able to engage in off-duty employment.
[2] 
Compliance with this policy, all applicable Township codes and ordinances, Police Department rules and regulations, policies, and procedures, and other applicable contracts, agreements, laws, and regulations.
[3] 
Notwithstanding any other regulations and/or contracts, that there is equitable opportunity for all eligible police officers within the Police Department to avail themselves of such off-duty employment. To assist in this matter, an annual list, beginning with the first day and month of the calendar year, will be maintained which shall reflect the date, time, and nature of off-duty employment available. That list will additionally reflect the following:
[a] 
The names of the police officers who are offered the opportunity to work off-duty employment.
[b] 
The names of the police officers who are assigned to and who have worked the off-duty employment.
[4] 
Repeated denials, however, by a police officer who has been offered off-duty employment do not encumber or obligate the Police Department with the continuing obligation to ensure equitable distribution of off-duty employment opportunities to those police officers who repeatedly deny opportunities for off-duty employment.
(h) 
Rates for fees and costs. All outside employers shall pay to the Township such hourly sums for the payment of the compensation for the off-duty employment of the police officers, and any other administrative fees and costs at specific rates or in percentage amounts, including, but not limited to, contributions towards insurance, overhead, out-of-pocket expenses for the police officers by the Township, contributions to social security and other benefits payable to police officers, and costs at specific rates or in percentage amounts for Township-owned equipment and vehicles, all of the aforesaid which may be fixed from time to time by resolution of the Board of Commissioners of the Township for off-duty employment. All fees and costs shall be deposited into an escrow account established by the Township. The Township shall remit to the police officers of the Police Department performing such duties the hourly rate set for their specific services as set by the resolution from the funds on deposit in the escrow account.
(i) 
Escrow account.
[1] 
The payment of 100% of the estimated amount due to the Township for the off-duty employment from the outside employer, which shall be set forth in the contracts, shall be paid to the Township in advance of providing any police officer for off-duty employment, except in the case of an emergency situation as determined by the Chief of Police. The amounts shall be paid to the Chief Financial Officer into a separate escrow account dedicated to off-duty employment funds. The amount deposited into the escrow account shall be in an amount sufficient to cover the rates of compensation and administrative fees and costs set forth in this subsection for the total estimated hours of service.
[2] 
If the amount required to be deposited with the Township exceeds $10,000, an escrow deposit of $10,000 shall be required. Said deposit of $10,000 shall be maintained at that threshold level by the outside employer until such time as the amount required to be deposited for all remaining services on any given project shall be less than $10,000, at which time the escrow account need not be maintained at the threshold level of $10,000.
[a] 
The outside employer requesting off-duty employment services shall be responsible for ensuring that sufficient funds remain in the escrow account in order to avoid any interruption of services.
[b] 
In the event the funds in such an escrow account should become depleted, services of off-duty employment provided by the police officers shall cease and requests for further or future services shall not be performed or posted until additional funds have been deposited in the escrow account in the manner prescribed above.
[3] 
State, county, municipal bodies and agencies, public schools, and public utilities shall be exempt from the requirements for the posting of an escrow deposit.
[4] 
In the event that contractors awarded contracts through public bidding in accordance with Subsection A(7)(d) fail to maintain sufficient funds in the escrow amounts for the off-duty employment of police officers, the Township may make the deposits of the estimated and/or actual amounts required for the payment of off-duty employment directly into the escrow account of the funds payable and owed to Township contractors that were awarded bids. The aforesaid payments made to the Township contractors which include a set off of amounts due shall include written notice advising of the deduction from the Township's payment to the contractor and the deposit of the funds into the escrow account for the off-duty employment of police officers.
[5] 
The Chief Financial Officer may modify the escrow requirements set forth in this subsection for off-duty employment assignments that are part of awards made through public bidding based upon an outside employer's history of reliable payment or other indications of prompt and timely payment and in accordance with the laws regarding the use and expenditures of public funds.
(j) 
Payment of invoices. Any invoice from the Township for any balance due, or a credit for any refund, if any, shall be issued by the Chief Financial Officer. Payments due shall be made within 10 days of receipt of the invoice from the Township.
(k) 
Insurance requirements. Except where otherwise provided in Subsection A(7)(m) of this section, no outside employer shall employ police officers for any off-duty employment without having first filed with the Municipal Clerk the following certificates of insurance, which shall be provided to the Municipal Clerk and shall not be deemed filed or approved unless such certificates have been approved in writing by the Insurance Fund Commissioner after consultation with the Township Risk Management Consultant or an authorized representative of the Township's insurer, if necessary.
[1] 
Certificate of insurance evidencing the existence of comprehensive general liability insurance covering the outside employer in the minimum coverage amount of $1,000,000 for any one claim and $2,000,000 for any aggregate claim. In addition, the certificate of general liability insurance in the aforesaid amounts shall name the Township, its officials, employees, and police officers as additional insureds for the off-duty employment of police officers.

[3]

(l) 
Indemnification. The outside employer shall sign as part of the off-duty employment contract a hold-harmless and indemnification agreement setting forth that the outside employer shall release, defend, and indemnify the police officers, the Chief of Police, the Police Department, the Township, and the Township Board of Commissioners, and any agent, officer, and/or employee of the Township and save them harmless from and against any and all claims, actions, damages, liability, and expenses, including but not limited to court costs and reasonable attorneys' fees, without regard to fault, in connection with, relating to, or arising out of any acts or omissions by the police officers in performing the off-duty employment or in connection with or arising out of the off-duty employment contract between the outside employer and the Township for such off-duty employment.
(m) 
Discretionary waivers of insurance and indemnification requirements. Notwithstanding the insurance and indemnification requirements set forth in Subsection A(7)(k) and (l) of this section, an outside employer may employ police officers for off-duty employment without the filing of a certificate of workers' compensation insurance, as provided in Subsection A(7)(k)[3] of this section, and/or without automobile liability insurance, as provided in Subsection A(7)(k)[2] of this section, and/or pursuant to revised indemnification terms at the discretion of and upon the written approval of both the Insurance Fund Commissioner and Township Risk Management Consultant or an authorized representative of the Township's insurer. There shall be, however, no discretion to waive the requirements for general liability insurance, as provided in Subsection A(7)(k)[1] of this section, except where the outside employer provides proof of homeowner's insurance or renter's insurance in certain circumstances that are deemed appropriate and approved in writing by the Insurance Fund Commissioner and Township Risk Management Consultant or an authorized representative of the Township's insurer.
(n) 
Emergency situations and police officer duties. The Chief of Police or his/her designee shall have the authority to order any police officers engaged in off-duty employment to respond to an emergency situation within the Township. The Chief of Police or his/her designee shall also have the right to order any off-duty employment to be terminated whenever said assignment creates an unacceptable risk to the health, safety, and welfare of the police officers assigned to the off-duty employment and/or the citizens of the Township. In the event that a police officer is assigned to an emergency situation, the Chief of Police or his/her designee shall make note of said emergency situation, as well as the time said officer was removed from the off-duty employment. In any situation where officers are called to an emergency situation, the outside employer shall not be responsible for the payment of the officer's hourly rate, administrative fee, or any other fees and costs to the Township until such time as said police officers and/or equipment returns to the assignment with the outside employer, except that the outside employer shall be liable for all time the police officers actually worked during their off-duty employment up to and until being reassigned to the emergency situation. Notwithstanding the aforesaid, police officers assigned to off-duty employment shall take "police action" in response to any serious police matter coming to their attention at any time and are additionally expected to respond to emergency situations in the Township if the off-duty employment is within the immediate area.
(o) 
Control of police officer conduct and uniforms. All police officers who work off-duty employment shall do so under the auspices and control of the Police Department's rules, regulations, policies, and procedures. All police officers working off-duty employment shall be attired as prescribed by the Police Department's uniform policy. Police officers shall be attired in the requisite and appropriate uniform or "plain clothes" that is determined to be best suited by the Chief of Police for the nature of the off-duty employment.
(p) 
Off-duty employment and pension and overtime. Wages earned by police officers for off-duty employment shall not be applied toward the pension benefits of the police officer so employed, nor shall hours worked for the off-duty employment be considered in any way compensable as overtime payable by the Township.
(q)
