Amends GS 143-166.42, which provides for a special separation allowance for retired local law enforcement officers, by establishing that payments to a retired officer are not to cease when a local government employer employs a retired officer either (1) in a public safety position in a capacity not requiring participation in the Local Government Employees' Retirement System or (2) in service to a county board of elections on an election day. Previously, employment of a retired officer by a local government in service to a county board of elections on election day was not included as an instance where special allowances to officers were not to be ceased under the statute.
