Emergency Services Department


The Department’s mission is to contribute toward the quality of our community’s life by fostering a stable environment in which security is balanced with community needs.

The success of this mission depends upon a true partnership between all Public Safety personnel, and the diverse population of residents and visitors that constitute the Ocean City community - a partnership built on mutual respect and responsibility.

Toward that partnership, the members of the Emergency Services Department pledge their respect for the needs and rights of the community, their diligence and professionalism in the protection of persons, property and rights, and to their determination to ever seek new and better ways through technology to reduce the opportunity for crime, to increase safety awareness, and to encourage a sense of communal concern for each other's safety and well-being.

Toward that partnership, we contend that all residents and visitors must also accept their individual and collective responsibilities to make the Town of Ocean City a safe community.

In achieving these goals, the Emergency Services Department stands accountable to the community and open to the ideas and concerns of its members and the people we serve.
