[Amended 10-15-2001 by Ord. No. 1092-2001]
The use of police officers requesting permission to accept off-duty employment as security guards or as patrolmen to direct traffic will only be considered in necessary and emergent situations.
The following shall constitute the policy for the utilization of off-duty employment for Middle Township police officers:
A. 
Before any police officer may engage in police-related activities for private persons or entities during off-duty hours, arrangements must be made with the governing body of Middle Township regarding the remuneration for the officer's pay benefits and the cost of use of any vehicle and equipment.
B. 
Following approval of the governing body, it is the decision of the Chief of Police to make the final decision as to the availability of manpower, his desire to assign personnel and his determination as to whether vehicles and/or equipment is available or should be made available.
C. 
Any such off-duty employment may be terminated at any time if the Township Committee feels it is in the best interest of the Township of Middle.
D. 
Any person or entity seeking to employ any police officer during his/her off-duty time may only do so by entering into a contract with the township.
[Added 2-5-2001 by Ord. No. 1075-2001]
E. 
No police officer may enter directly into a contract for off-duty employment with any prospective employer.
[Added 2-5-2001 by Ord. No. 1075-2001]
F. 
Any contract for payment to a police officer for off-duty employment must specify that payment shall be made to the township. The township shall then pay the officer.
[Added 2-5-2001 by Ord. No. 1075-2001]
G. 
All contracts for outside employment of any police officer shall be subject to the provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
[Added 2-5-2001 by Ord. No. 1075-2001]
H. 
Any contract for the employment of an off-duty police officer shall include a provision that the township shall be compensated for the employer's share of social security, administrative costs of maintaining timesheets, payroll processing and billing vendors and any additional liability insurance costs associated with the services provided. The Township Committee may, by resolution, set the aforedescribed rates.
