On April 23, 2013, the Ocean City Auxiliary Officers and Detective SGT Jeff Smith were honored by the Worcester County Drug and Alcohol Council at the 22nd Annual Drug and Alcohol Awards Reception for their outstanding achievement in drug and alcohol prevention. Their awards were based on their outstanding contributions to the improvement of the quality of life by reducing alcohol and drug abuse in Worcester County.

Over the years, the Ocean City Auxiliary Officers have volunteered hundreds of hours at “Play It Safe” events. Their dedicated support has helped ensure the mission of the Ocean City Drug and Alcohol Abuse Committee by providing visiting high school graduates with fun, drug free activities.

Detective Sergeant Jeff Smith was also honored for his superior commitment in the area of drug enforcement in Ocean City and Worcester County.  SGT Smith is the supervisor of the Ocean City Police Vice and Narcotics Unit.  He has been instrumental in recovering drugs and contraband having a street value of tens of thousands of dollars.

The Ocean City Police Department is very proud of all of the participants in the OCPD Auxiliary Officers program and SGT Smith for unwavering devotion.  The OCPD is committed to reducing drug and alcohol abuse in the greater Ocean City area and is thrilled to have these citizens and personnel commended for their extraordinary service.
