              Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
 

              Section 1. Chapter 22C, Section 63 of the Massachusetts General Laws shall be amended in paragraph 1, line 7, by

              striking out the words "regular police officers" and inserting in place thereof the words: "state police

              officers".

              Section 2. Chapter 22C, Section 63 of the Massachusetts General Laws is hereby amended by adding after the words "in or upon lands or structures owned, used or occupied by such college, university, or other institution or hospital" at the end of the first paragraph, the following new words "or roads and lands contiguous to institutional property." Such expansion of jurisdiction shall not allow such officers to work paid details in this new area that would have traditionally been worked by municipal and state police officers.
