  S 210. Division  of  state police. The division of state police in the

ment benefits, service credits and other benefits as any other member of
the state police. If, prior to appointment, the superintendent served as
a  member  of  the  state  police, he or she, upon appointment, shall be
entitled to continue to accrue and receive such credits and benefits  as
he  or  she  would  have  been  entitled  to accrue and receive prior to
appointment.
  If, prior to his or her appointment,  the  superintendent  shall  have
served  as  a  member  of  the State Police for a period of ten years or
more, he or she shall, provided he or she is not  eligible  for  retire-
ment,  upon  EXPIRATION  OR termination of service as superintendent, be
reappointed, without examination, as a member of the state police in the
grade held by  him  or  her  prior  to  appointment  as  superintendent,
