Senate committee substitute makes the following changes to the 3rd edition.

Amends proposed changes to Section 1 of SL 1969-1170 to clarify that the powers that may be extended in an agreement between Mecklenburg County and any municipality in the county include jurisdiction (instead of extraterritorial jurisdiction). Adds that nothing in Section 1 authorizes police officers in Mecklenburg County to exercise any power or right outside of their original jurisdiction that they cannot exercise within their original jurisdiction.
