There shall be paid to the Township of Cheltenham for the police service provided under the terms of this Article an hourly rate as determined by the Township Manager under the provisions of the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act. If the activity requires fewer than two hours' police service, there shall be a charge for not fewer than two hours. All such charges shall be paid to the Township in advance prior to the time said police service is required.
The Chief of Police shall, from time to time, ascertain which police officers desire to participate in this police service in addition to their regular duties, keep an accurate record thereof and assign such service as extra work to those men desiring the same in a fair and equitable manner. All officers performing such services in addition to their regular duties shall receive additional compensation equal to one and one-half (11/2) times their regular hourly rate, in accordance with the Fair Labor Standards Act, such additional compensation to be determined by the time actually spent on the assignment, except that, if the total time per assignment shall be less than two hours, the officer shall be compensated for two hours. Such compensation shall be added to the officer's regular compensation and included therewith for purposes of pensions and all other benefits to which the officers are entitled as regular policemen. During the time the officers are performing such extra duty, including traveling to and from the assignment, they shall be under the jurisdiction and control of the Chief of Police in the same manner as police officers are when performing their regular police duties.
