for in Code Section 16-11-124 acting within the scope of his or her official duties on the premises of a federally
licensed nuclear power facility or the properties adjacent to the facility pursuant
to a written agreement entered into with the local law enforcement agency having jurisdiction
over the facility shall be entitled to immunity as provided in Code Section 51-11-9. Such officer and the officer's employer or the owner, operator, or licensee of the
facility where the officer is providing security services shall also be immune from
liability for the officer's good faith performance of his or her duties at such facility
