As used in this section, "Chautauqua assembly" has the same meaning as in section 4511.90 of the Revised Code.
Upon the approval, by resolution, of the board of township trustees of the township or township police district in which the department or office is located, the police department of any township or township police district or the office of any township police constable may contract with any port authority or Chautauqua assembly, and any port authority or Chautauqua assembly may contract with any such department or office, to have the department's members or the office's constables provide police protection to the port authority or Chautauqua assembly with which the department or office has contracted.
Chapter 2744: of the Revised Code, insofar as it applies to the operation of police departments, applies to any township police department, township police district, or township police constable's office, and to its members or constables when they are rendering service outside their own subdivision pursuant to a contract entered into under this section.
Police department members and constables acting outside the subdivision in which they are employed may participate in any pension or indemnity fund established by their employer to the same extent as while acting within the employing subdivision, and are entitled to all the rights and benefits of Chapter 4123. of the Revised Code, to the same extent as while performing service within the subdivision.
