With the first major special event of the season upon us, we at the Ocean City Police Department have officially begun our busy season.

To effectively police the town, we are required to supplement our police presence during major motor events such as Cruisin’ Ocean City by bringing in allied agencies to assist our officers. This weekend, citizens can expect to see officers from the Maryland State Police, Worcester County Sheriff’s Office, and Maryland Transportation Authority.

Many of these officers travel far distances to assist us and, as an incentive to their agency, we work very closely with our local hotels, motels, and restaurants to provide the officers with food and lodging while they are here.

On behalf of our entire department, I would first like to thank Susan Jones and her staff at the Ocean City Hotel Motel Restaurant Association. Thanks to their relationships with hotel owners and coordination efforts, we are able to provide lodging for all of the officers that need it at no cost to the Town of Ocean City. I sincerely thank the Commander Hotel, Francis Scott Key Resort, and Ocean 1 Hotel for their gracious hospitality and support.

Many restaurants throughout town have also agreed to provide discounted meals for visiting officers. I would like to sincerely thank Anthony’s Carryout, Captain’s Table, Coral Reef Café, Dough Roller on 41st and 70th streets, Fish Tales, General’s Kitchen, Happy Jack’s Pancake House, Layton’s on 16th Street, Pit & Pub on 28th Street, Rosenfeld’s Jewish Deli and Starbucks on 17th Street.

We are extremely grateful for the many local business partners that have shown their dedication to public safety in Ocean City. The community partnerships and strong relationships that we enjoy are truly what makes our community safe.
