[Adopted 11-9-1998 by Ord. No. 757 (Ch. 5, Art. I, of the 1973 Code)]
This article is created pursuant to N.J.S.A. 40:48-1(6) and N.J.S.A. 40A:14-156.1 and is adopted as a reciprocal agreement with all municipalities participating in the county-wide mutual aid compact. Pursuant to this agreement, the Borough of Shrewsbury shall render assistance to any participating municipality by providing members of the Shrewsbury Police Department, upon request, to help preserve the public peace and order.
The municipality requesting assistance shall compensate the officers at an agreed upon rate by forwarding payment to the municipality, which will then compensate those officers who rendered assistance.
In the event that a member of the Shrewsbury Police Department is injured while rendering assistance to a participating municipality, the municipality receiving the assistance shall reimburse the municipality rendering assistance for any and all expenses incurred as a result of a worker's compensation claim filed by the injured officer.
This article is separate and distinct from any mutual aid agreements previously entered into between the Borough of Shrewsbury and any other municipalities, and shall remain in full force and effect until specifically repealed by an affirmative act of the governing body.
