(March 30, 2018) Ocean City Police Sgt. Dennis Eade, who helped develop the resort police’s procedures, training and policy in response to assaults in progress, is headlining the Delmarva Safety Expo at the Clarion Fontainebleau Hotel on 110th Street on April 4-5.

Eade has served the OCPD for almost 18 years, and is an experienced active shooter trainer, according to a press release. He has previously served in patrol, criminal investigation, administrative and service divisions, as well as with specialty units.

“He has played a pivotal role as an instructor and coordinator for the force and has completed advanced training in all areas of his job,” Heather Brittingham, Arrow Safety spokeswoman, said.

The two-day event, presented by Selbyville, Delaware’s Arrow Safety Device Company, is free to attend and open to the public. The programs were developed with law enforcement, emergency services, county and state government, hotel and motel security as well as education personnel in mind.

The safety expo will also feature 20 vendors from the industry.

“This event will focus on safety in the public, transportation and highway industries, and how we can be better prepared to handle these situations,” Brittingham said.

Arrow Safety, founded in 1930, is a manufacturer and supplier of public, highway and transportation safety industries.

On Wednesday, April 4, the expo’s trade show runs from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m., with Sgt. Eade’s active shooter training offered at 4:30 p.m. and lasting about two hours. On Thursday, April 5, the expo begins at 9 a.m. and lasts until 4 p.m. Eade’s Thursday training session is scheduled for between 1-3 p.m.
