An Act concerning certain police departments and amending P.L.1996, c.115.
Be It Enacted by the Senate and General Assembly of the State of New Jersey:
1. Section 10 of P.L.1996, c.115 (C.40A:14-181) is amended to read as follows:
10. Every law enforcement agency, including a police department of an institution of higher education established pursuant to P.L.1970, c.211 (C.18A:6-4.2 et seq.), shall adopt and implement guidelines which shall be consistent with the guidelines governing the "Internal Affairs Policy and Procedures" of the Police Management Manual promulgated by the Police Bureau of the Division of Criminal Justice in the Department of Law and Public Safety, and shall be consistent with any tenure or civil service laws, and shall not supersede any existing contractual agreements.
(cf: P.L.1996, c.115, s.10)
2. This act shall take effect on the first day of the fourth month after enactment.
This bill requires police departments of institutions of higher education to adopt the Attorney General Guidelines on internal affairs policies and procedures.

Under the provisions of this bill, police departments of institutions of higher education would also be required to adopt and implement these guidelines.
