Police Calls For Service Jump In Ocean City In June

OCEAN CITY — A look at some of the statistics from June showed a significant spike in certain calls for service and municipal ordinance violations.

During Monday’s Mayor and Council meeting, Ocean City Police Department (OCPD) Chief Ross Buzzuro presented his monthly activity report for June, which showed considerable spikes in certain areas over the same month in 2016. Buzzuro explained officer-initiated calls for service increased 66 percent in June 2017 compared to June 2016, while citizen calls for service actually dropped by 6 percent.

The net increase in total calls for service during June 2017 came in at 36 percent. Buzzuro explained the end result was about 500 more calls for service this June compared to last June.

“We had a substantial increase in officer calls for service last month,” he said. “There were about 500 more calls for service in June of this year versus the same month last year. That’s a pretty good number and that is the result of very proactive policing.”

How are calls for service proactive policing? Sounds like more crime and more people reporting it.

Ocean City has always had more crime than reported, you all know this is true. I bet none of this is ever mentioned on "Trip Adviser" or "Yelp".
