    What's not to like? Cotton candy, fair rides, hillbilly fights and carnies. If the pay is good and there's some action I'd be applying if I was from PA.

    "Sooo, real cousin or play cousins ?"

            I would imagine this is done for insurance purposes in case of lawsuits while working the Fair.

              Actually, this is not that odd.

              The California State Fair Police only has three or four full time officers. However, it employs around 200 part time officers who are already employed on a full time basis by local law enforcement agencies. They only work at the fairgrounds on an as needed basis when major events are scheduled and a police presence is needed. Just about every Chief in the area grinds his teeth during the three week annual fair because all 200 officers schedule their vacations during that period so they can go moonlight at the fairgrounds.

              California POST says that because the officers are already working full time for another agency, the Fair Police can deem them to be qualified and skip all of the normal testing issues such as the medical, psych and background (although it might be a good idea to take a look at the officers personnel package with his current department.) In addition, because the officer is already in CalPERS with is primary agency and cannot collect two pensions, there is no retirement contribution, and because he is part time, he does not qualify for a benefit package. In short, he is merely an hourly employee with no benefits other than basic worker's comp. It is a cheap way to hire cops versus contracting with a local PD or SO, which usually charges $60 to $90 per hour worked out here.

              I believe there are a number of Fairground PDs that operate this way throughout the US. .
              Going too far is half the pleasure of not getting anywhere

                The only problem is that in PA, generally SO's do not handle LE duties. We dont have unincorporated areas as everything is incorporated. But the agency you mentioned is a state agency (I remember seeing when I was in LA, "State Exhibition Police") where as by the above link its just off duty cops working the fair in department uniform.
