Editor's Note: This ordinance also provided that it shall take effect immediately upon its final passage and publication in accordance with law; provided, however, that if the reciprocal ordinance of the Township of Greenwich, Township of Lopatcong, Town of Phillipsburg and Township of Pohatcong is not effective until a later date, then this ordinance shall become effective on such later effective date of the reciprocal ordinance of said Township of Greenwich, Township of Lopatcong, Town of Phillipsburg and Township of Pohatcong.
In the event of an emergency, any police officer of the Township of Lopatcong, the Township of Greenwich, Township of Pohatcong or the Town of Phillipsburg or of the New Jersey State Police, acting in the performance of his duties, may request of the Chief of Police or any police officer on duty of this Borough and the Township of Pohatcong police assistance in the Township of Greenwich, Township of Lopatcong or Town of Phillipsburg.
Police of this Borough may, upon such request in the event of emergency, respond to the request and render police assistance in the Township of Greenwich, Township of Lopatcong, Township of Pohatcong or Town of Phillipsburg. Police of this Borough shall not be obligated to respond to such request for assistance and shall not respond if, in their judgment and discretion, responding would jeopardize public safety in this Borough. Any police officer of this Borough responding to such request and rendering police assistance in the Township of Greenwich, Township of Lopatcong, Township of Pohatcong or Town of Phillipsburg shall:
A. 
While engaged in such assistance, have such rights and immunities as he may otherwise enjoy in the performance of his normal duties in this Borough.
B. 
If he suffers a casualty or death while engaged in such assistance, be entitled to all salary, pension rights, workers' compensation and other benefits to which such officer would be entitled if such casualty or death occurred in the performance of his normal duties in this Borough.
Upon passage and effective date of a reciprocal ordinance by the Township of Greenwich, Township of Lopatcong, Town of Phillipsburg and Township of Pohatcong, there shall exist an agreement between this Borough and such townships and town for the provision of mutual police aid in case of emergency upon the terms contained in this chapter and such reciprocal ordinance.
