As we previously announced, we are expecting an unsanctioned event known as “College Beach Weekend” to take place Thursday, July 20 through Sunday, July 23. I would like to assure our citizens that the Ocean City Police Department is fully prepared for the influx of visitors that this event and the busy July weekend may bring to our town.
Like all other events in Ocean City, both sanctioned and unsanctioned, my staff and I have been planning and preparing for this event and any isolated incident that may arise for quite some time. We have a very comprehensive strategic plan in place that includes assistance from our allied agencies. Residents and visitors can expect a high police presence, particularly on the boardwalk, and strict enforcement of our laws and ordinances.
Business owners are encouraged to staff accordingly and employees should be prepared for a busy July weekend. Residents are reminded to report any ordinance violations, including sleeping in vehicles and noise.
