  1  7 and not more than ninety days next following the date of

  1 24 not mentally or physically incapacitated for the further
  1 25 performance of duty, shall be entitled to be restored to
  1 26 active service in the same position held immediately prior to
  1 27 the application for disability benefits.

  1 32 allowance if otherwise qualified, without the authorization or
  1 33 approval of the chief of the police or fire department
  1 34 employing the member.
