B. 
Police Department contracted off-duty employment. For the convenience of those persons and entities which utilize the services of off-duty law enforcement officers of the Township of Denville Police Department and to authorize the outside employment of Township police while off duty, the Township hereby establishes a policy regarding the use of said officers.
(1) 
Members of the Police Department shall be permitted to accept police-related employment for private employers or school districts only during off-duty hours and at such time as will not interfere with the efficient performance of regularly scheduled or emergency duty for the Township.
(2) 
Any person or entity wishing to employ off-duty police shall first obtain the approval of the Chief of Police or his designee, which approval shall be granted if, in the opinion of the Chief, such employment would not be inconsistent with the efficient functioning and good reputation of the Police Department, and would not unreasonably endanger or threaten the safety of the officer or officers who are to perform the work. After the employment has been approved, the person or entity shall complete a service agreement before the work has started.
(a) 
Types of extra-duty services which may be considered for contracting are:
[1] 
Traffic control and pedestrian safety.
[2] 
Crowd control.
[3] 
Security and protection of life and property.
[4] 
Routine law enforcement for public authorities.
[5] 
Plainclothes assignments.
(3) 
Escrow accounts. Any person or entity requesting the services of an off-duty law enforcement officer in the Township of Denville Police Department shall estimate the number of hours such law enforcement services are required, which estimate shall be approved, in writing, by the Chief of Police, and shall establish an escrow account with the Chief Financial Officer of the Township by depositing an amount sufficient to cover the rates of compensation and administrative fees set forth in § 245-14A for the total estimated hours of service before such work is to begin.
(4) 
Prior to posting any request for services of off-duty law enforcement officers, the Chief of Police or his designee, shall verify that the balance in the escrow account of the person or entity requesting services is sufficient to cover the compensation and fees for the number of hours specified in the request for services. The Chief of Police shall not post a request for services from any person or entity unless all fees and compensation required in the manner described above have been deposited with the Chief Financial Officer. No officer shall provide any such services for more hours than are specified in the request for services.
(5) 
In the event the funds in such an escrow account should become depleted, services of off-duty law enforcement 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.
(6) 
The person or entity requesting such services shall be responsible for ensuring that sufficient funds remain in the escrow account in order to avoid any interruption of services.
(7) 
Any law enforcement officers, when so employed by the Township, shall be treated as an employee of the Township; provided, however, that wages earned for outside employment shall not be applied toward the pension benefits of law enforcement officers so employed, nor shall hours worked for outside employment be considered in any way compensable as overtime.
