responsibilities conferred upon and vested in it prior to the signing

of this Agreement by the laws and Constitution of the State of New

Jersey and of the United States, including, but without limiting the

generality of the foregoing, the following rights:

         l.  To the executive management and administrative control of

the Township Government and its properties and facilities and the

2. To hire all employees subject to the provisions of law,

to determine their qualifications and conditions for continued

employment or assignment and to promote and transfer employees;

         3.  To suspend, demote, discharge or take other disciplinary

                                 LODGE RIGHTS

     A.  The Township agrees to grant time off, as provided by State

Statute, to any employee designated by the Lodge to attend State and

written notice is given to the Chief of the Department by the Lodge.  

No more than two (2) employees from both units, that is, a total of

two (2), shall be granted time off at any one time, unless an employee

of the Township of Randolph is elected as an officer in the State

and/or National organization.  In such cases, one such elected State-

wide officer may be granted time off in addition to the two (2)

representatives stated above.  In addition, one other member from both

units, that is, a total of one, shall be granted time off under the

provisions of this paragraph to attend the annual meeting of the

National Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police.

     B.  During Collective Negotiations, authorized Lodge

Representatives, not to exceed three (3), including the President of

The Lodge, shall be excused from their work duties to participate in

C. The Township agrees that the F.O.P. shall have the right

through a three (3) officer committee including the President of the

Lodge, to make recommendations and suggestions in connection with the

revision of the present Police Department Rules and Regulations.  The

impact of such revision of rules on working conditions, if any, shall

be negotiated with the F.O.P.


D. The Township agrees that in the event that disciplinary

action is taken in the form of formal, filed charges against any

officer, said officer shall be permitted to have his personal

attorney, the Lodge Attorney and/or the Lodge President present at

such formal proceedings, provided that all costs for such persons

shall be borne soley by the Officer and/or the Lodge.



                                 ARTICLE IV


     A.  It is mutually agreed that there shall be no discrimination

because of race, color, religion, sex, age, marital status, national

origin, or physical disability unless based upon a bona fide job

requirement.  Lodge and Township representatives shall work

cooperatively to assure the achievement of equal employment

opportunities.  Any employee who fails to cooperate to this end shall

be subject to disciplinary action.  Furthermore, employees who feel

they have been discriminated against shall be encouraged to use the

grievance provisions of this contract prior to seeking relief through

other channels.

It is understood that the Lodge does not have any role in the hiring,

discipline or dismissal of any employee.

C. Should it become necessary for an Officer to appear in
    Superior, County, Municipal or other Court on official business during

    other than his regularly scheduled duty time, such employee shall

    receive compensation for such appearance at time-and-one-half.   In

    lieu of cash payment, an Officer may opt for compensatory time off at

    the rate of time-and-one-half the hours worked.  Such time may be

    taken only when scheduled by the Chief so as not to interfere with

    departmental operations.

    D. If at any time an officer is called to duty for any purpose
    where his/her response is required by the department, that officer shall be compensated for call-out time on the following basis:
           Overtime or compensatory time, at the discretion of the

    officer, for two (2) hours or actual time spent, whichever is greater.  

    E. For the purpose of this article, the hourly pay rate shall

    B. Vacations are to be effective from January l to December 3l, and are granted on a calendar year basis for employees who remain on the payroll continuously and without interruption for the requisite number of years.  Leaves of absence shall neither break continuity of service, nor be counted for purposes of accruing additional vacation under this section.  Issues which may arise as to creditable service shall be controlled by applicable law.

      the employee's starting time, except in emergencies.

      may be cause for denial of the use of sick leave for that absence.

                   (b)  Absence without notice for five (5) consecutive days

      may result in disciplinary action which may include dismissal in

      accordance with law.

      because of personal illness, as a condition of his/her return to duty,

      to be examined at the expense of the Township by a physician of the

      the same extent that benefits are provided in the standard policy of

      the Township for active employees.

      B. This coverage shall continue during the lifetime of the

      disabled officer and his/her wife/husband under the family plan, but

      shall terminate as to the wife/husband upon his/her remarriage after

                   A.  Purpose

                       l.  The purpose of this procedure is to secure, at the lowest

              possible level, an equitable solution to the problem which may arise

              affecting the terms and conditions of this Agreement and to resolve

              grievances as soon as possible so as to assure efficiency and promote

              employees' morale.  The parties agree that this procedure will be

              kept as informal as may be appropriate.

                   2.  Nothing contained herein shall be construed as limiting the

              right of any employee having a grievance to discuss the matter

              informally with the Head of the Department and having the grievance

              adjusted without the intervention of the F.O.P.

                  B.  Definition

                   The term "grievance" as used herein means any controversy arising

              over the interpretation, application or violation of any policy,

              agreement or administrative decision affecting the terms and

              conditions of this Agreement and may be raised by an individual or the

              F.O.P. on behalf of and at the request of an employee or group of


                   C.  Steps of the Grievance Procedure

              The following constitutes the sole and exclusive method for resolving

              grievances between the parties covered by this Agreement and shall be

              followed in its entirety unless any step is waived by mutual consent.

                       STEP ONE:  The moving party shall present the grievance in

              writing signed by the aggrieved to the Department Head within five (5)

              calendar days of the occurrence giving rise to the grievance for the

              purpose of resolution.  In the discussion of the grievance, the

              persons involved shall make an earnest effort to resolve the matter.  

              The Department Head shall make whatever additional investigation is

              necessary and shall, within five (5) calendar days after presentation

              of the grievance, give his decision.

                       STEP TWO:  If a grievance is not resolved at Step One, the

              moving party may, within five (5) calendar days of receipt of the

              answer in Step One, submit the written grievance to the Township

              Manager, who shall give his answer within five (5) calendar days of

              the presentation of the grievance in Step Two.

                       STEP THREE:  If the grievance is not resolved in Step Two, it

              may be appealed in writing within five (5) calendar days after receipt

              of the answer in Step Two to the Governing Body.  Upon receipt of an

              appeal, a meeting may be scheduled to discuss the grievance within

              fifteen (15) calendar days of receipt of the appeal unless extended by

              mutual agreement.  The decision of the Governing Body shall be made

              not later than ten (l0) calendar days after the Step Three meeting, or

              if no meeting is held then the answer shall be given within fifteen

              (15) calendar days of receipt of the grievance.

                        STEP FOUR:  Arbitration:

              (a) In the event the grievance has not been resolved at

              Step Three, either party may within five (5) calendar days request

              arbitration.  The arbitrator shall be chosen in accordance with the

              rules of the Public Employment Relations Commission.

              (b) The arbitrator shall be bound by the provisions of

              this Agreement and restricted to the application of the facts

              presented to him involved in the grievance.  The arbitrator shall not

              have the authority to add to, modify, detract from or alter in any way

              the provisions of this Agreement or any amendment or supplement


                           (c) The costs of the service of the arbitrator shall be

              borne equally between the Township and the F.O.P.  Any other expense

              incurred, including but not limited to the presentation of witnesses,

              shall be paid by the party incurring same.

                           (d) The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and


                   D.  A grievance will be considered settled upon its withdrawal in

              writing, or when the grievant ceases to be an employee by resignation

              or when any time limit set forth above has expired for its appeal to

              the next step.  Failure to answer a grievance with the proper time

              shall be deemed a denial and move it to the next step.

              ARTICLE XX


              A. If any provision of this Agreement, or any application of
                this Agreement to any employee or group of employees is held invalid

                by operation of law or by a Court or other tribunal of competent

                jurisdiction, such provision shall be inoperative but all other

                provisions shall not be affected thereby and shall continue in full

                force and effect.

                ARTICLE XXI

                WORK IN HIGHER RANK

                A. When an employee covered by this Agreement is formally

                assigned to or required to perform the duties of a higher ranking

                officer on a permanent basis or after four consecutive weeks, the

                employee shall receive the pay of that higher rank together with any

                benefits and privileges which may go with that higher rank.

                     B.  Paragraph A above shall not apply to temporary assignments,

                wherein an officer is required to fill in for an absent superior, due

                to illness, vacation or similar reasons, in an "acting" capacity.

                ARTICLE XXII

                     This Agreement shall take effect from January l, 2004, and shall
