h. 
Vacancy in the Office. If there is a vacancy in the Office of Municipal Public Defender, if the Municipal Public Defender is temporarily unavailable or if a finding of conflict of interest precludes the Municipal Public Defender from representing an indigent defendant, the Municipal Prosecutor may prosecute the offense if the Municipal Court appoints a qualified attorney to represent the indigent defendant.

i. 
Eligibility of Indigent Defendant. Eligibility for services of the Municipal Public Defender shall be determined by the Municipal Court on the basis of the need of the defendant.

In the event that a determination of eligibility cannot be made before the time when the first services are to be rendered, or if an initial determination is found to be erroneous, the Municipal Court shall refer the defendant to the Municipal Public Defender provisionally, and if subsequently it is determined that the defendant is ineligible, the Municipal Court shall inform the defendant, and the defendant shall be obliged to engage his/her own counsel and to reimburse the Borough for the cost of the services rendered to that time.

The Court is authorized to obtain information from any public record office of the State or of any subdivision or agency thereof on request and without the fees ordinarily required by law.
Whenever a person entitled to representation by a Municipal Public Defender pursuant to this section is under the age of eighteen (18) years, the eligibility for services shall be determined on the basis of the financial circumstances of the individual and the financial circumstances of the individual's parents or legal guardians. The Borough shall be entitled to recover the cost of legal services from the parents or legal guardians as provided in this section, and the Municipal Court shall have authority to require parents or legal guardians to execute and deliver the written requests or authorization required under applicable law in order to provide the Court with access to records of public or private sources, otherwise confidential, as may be of aid to it in evaluating eligibility.
If the defendant has or reasonably expects to have means to meet some part, though not all, of the cost of the services rendered, the defendant shall be required to reimburse the Borough, either by a single payment or in installments in such amounts as he/she can reasonably be expected to pay.
The Borough shall have a lien on any property to which the defendant shall have or acquire an interest for an amount equal to the reasonable value of the services rendered to a defendant pursuant to this section as calculated at the same rate as the New Jersey Office of the Public Defender bills clients at that time.

[Ord. #1999-04, S 1]
Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 40A:14-156, N.J.S.A. 40A:14-156.1, et seq., there are hereby established mutual aid agreements among and between this municipality and each of the aforementioned municipalities in the County of Ocean, New Jersey, which shall become effective upon the adoption by one (1) or more of the aforementioned municipalities (hereinafter referred to as "participating municipalities") of reciprocal ordinances to provide mutual aid in police services in case of emergency. This agreement shall apply whenever this municipality may have an emergency within its boundaries requiring additional police assistance to protect life and property, and whenever any of the aforementioned municipalities may experience a similar emergency.

The Chief or acting head of the Police Department or Mayor, or Chief Executive Officer of a participating municipality, is hereby authorized to request assistance from the Chief or other head of the Police Department of any other participating municipality to provide aid in accordance with N.J.S.A. 40A:14-156, et seq.
[Ord. #1999-04, S 4]
A participating municipality shall provide police assistance when a valid request in accordance with this Agreement to supply personnel is made, to the extent possible without endangering persons or property within the confines of the providing municipality.
[Ord. #1999-04, S 5]
The members of the providing municipality's Police Department supplying aid shall have the same powers, authority, rights and immunities as the members of the police force of the requesting municipality when aid is being rendered therein.

[Ord. #1999-04, S 6]
These mutual aid agreements established herein by and between the aforementioned municipalities in the County of Ocean shall further authorize mutual police aid and assistance under the County Critical Incident Management Plan as established by the Ocean County Prosecutor, as the Chief Law Enforcement Official in the County.

[Ord. #1999-04, S 7]
Members of the police force of the providing municipality suffering injury, or their legal representatives, if death results while rendering assistance in the requesting municipality, shall be entitled to all such salary, pension rights, workmen's compensation or other benefits, as they would have accrued if such injury or death had occurred in the performance of duties in their own municipality, with such benefits to be the responsibility of the providing municipality.
