A. Prior to appointment as a campus police officer or member of an auxiliary force, each person shall be investigated by the campus police department of the institution applying for the order of appointment or, if none has been established, by the police department of the county, city or town in which such institution is located. Such investigation shall determine whether the person is responsible, honest and in all ways capable of performing the duties of a campus police officer.
B. Each campus police officer and member of an auxiliary force appointed and employed pursuant to this chapter shall be a state employee of the institution named in the order of appointment. Insofar as not inconsistent with the Virginia Personnel Act (§ 2.2-2900 et seq.), the governing board of such institution shall provide for the conditions and terms of employment and compensation and provide a distinctive uniform and badge of office.
