roads, alleys or ways at or near schools, and who, in the
performance of such duty, shall be vested with all the powers of
local police officers. Such special school zone police officers
shall be in uniform, shall display a badge or other sign of
authority, shall serve at the will and pleasure of the appointing
authority, and shall not come within the civil service provisions
