The Ocean City Police Department and the Town of Ocean City are taking a close look at events that occurred over the weekend on the Boardwalk. While most of our visitors were in town to enjoy a beautiful summer weekend at the beach, a large number of young adults who gathered on the Boardwalk chose to disobey our laws and treat our town without respect. This activity will not be tolerated on our Boardwalk, our beach or anywhere in Ocean City. While no injuries to our law-abiding citizens and visitors were reported, Ocean City expects all visitors to our town to be respectful to others and to obey the laws. The safety of our residents and visitors is, as always, our top priority.
