The commissioner may assign or transfer members to serve at such stations and, within the limits of this chapter or other existing law, to perform such duties as he or she shall designate. The commissioner may determine what members other than state police shall give bonds, and prescribe the conditions and amount. (Amended 2005, No. 209 (Adj. Sess.), § 31.)
