(September 5, 2013) – The Ocean City Police Department has recently established a new unit within the department. Beginning this month, the Special Enforcement Unit will be patrolling throughout Ocean City. The Special Enforcement Unit will be a proactive criminal investigative unit which will focus on working closely with the community to identify problems and solve crime. Officers assigned to this unit will primarily be working in a plain clothes capacity much like the department’s Narcotics Unit.
“The new Special Enforcement Unit will act as a stepping stone between our Patrol Division and our Criminal Investigation Division,” said Chief Buzzuro. “The Unit will look very closely at growing crime trends in various areas of Ocean City and serve as proactive crime fighters.”
