40A:14-127.1 Reappointment of certain law enforcement officers.

1. a. Notwithstanding the provisions of any other law to the contrary, any former State trooper, sheriff's officer or deputy, or county or municipal police officer who has separated from service voluntarily or involuntarily other than by removal for cause on charges of misconduct or delinquency, shall be deemed to meet the maximum age requirement for appointment established by N.J.S.40A:14-127, if his actual age, less the number of years of his previous service as a law enforcement officer, would meet the maximum age requirement established by said section, but no person may be appointed who is over the age of 45 as of the date of his reappointment; except that in the case of a State trooper, sheriff's officer or deputy, or county or municipal police officer whose separation from service was involuntary due to a lay-off or reduction in force, such person shall be deemed to meet the maximum age requirement for appointment by complying with the procedure established hereinbefore without regard to his actual age at the time of reappointment.

b. For the purposes of meeting the maximum age requirement for appointment established by N.J.S.40A:14-127 and for the purpose of taking any civil service examination for appointment as a municipal police officer, the Civil Service Commission, for good cause shown, may deem an individual a former State trooper, sheriff's officer or deputy, or county or municipal police officer in accordance with subsection a. of this section, even though that individual's separation from current service will not occur except upon a new appointment.
