[HISTORY: Adopted by the Borough Council of the Borough of Alpine as § 2-26 (Ord. No. 270) of the 1970 Revised General Ordinances. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Police Department — See Ch. 45.
The Police Department of the borough may call on neighboring communities for police assistance when the need arises and may respond in like manner when called upon for assistance from other communities. The statutes of New Jersey authorize such emergency assistance.
The Police Department of the borough is authorized to enter into mutual reciprocal agreements with neighboring communities for providing police assistance to such municipalities and receiving similar police assistance from the communities.
All such agreements shall be reported to the Mayor and Council and be subject to the approval of the Mayor and Council.
The police of the borough shall respond to such calls for assistance when ordered by a superior officer of the Police Department authorized to permit such assistance, and while so acting shall be considered as acting in line of duty as provided by law.
While performing such duties, members of the Police Department shall be protected in their pension rights, rights to compensation for injuries and right of dependents in the event of death, and recovery of salary for work performed while not on duty in the borough, subject to the approval of the Mayor and Council, as if such duties were performed in the Borough of Alpine.
