HOUSE BILL 608
AN ACT TO ALLOW THE PEMBROKE STATE UNIVERSITY CAMPUS POLICE TO ASSIST THE ROBESON SHERIFF AND THE PEMBROKE TOWN POLICE.
The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts:
Section 1. In accordance with rules, policies or guidelines adopted by the Board of Trustees of Pembroke State University, the chief of the Pembroke State University Campus Police or his designee may temporarily provide assistance to the Pembroke Town Police or the Robeson County Sheriff in enforcing State and local laws if so requested in writing by the town police chief or his designee or the sheriff or his designee. The assistance may comprise allowing the campus police to work temporarily with officers of the requesting agency (including in an undercover capacity) and lending equipment and supplies. While working with the requesting agency under the authority of this section, an officer has the same jurisdiction, powers, rights, privileges and immunities as the officers of the requesting agency in addition to those he normally possesses. While on duty with the requesting agency, he is subject to the lawful operational commands of his superior officers in the requesting agency, but for personnel and administrative purposes, he remains under the control of his own agency, including for purposes of pay. He is furthermore entitled to worker's compensation and the same benefits when acting pursuant to this section to the same extent as though he were functioning within the normal scope of his duties.
Sec. 2. This act is effective upon ratification.
In the General Assembly read three times and ratified, this the 11th day of May, 1981.
