OCEAN CITY POLICE OFFICERS PATROL THE RESORT ON BICYCLES, ON FOOT, AND IN PATROL CARS.

The Ocean City Police Department has scheduled additional testing as the department attempts to recruit up to 140 seasonal police officers to work in Ocean City for summer 2011.

The additional testing will be on March 19 and 20, at the Ocean City Elementary School on Center Drive in West Ocean City. Applicants must arrive at the testing site no later than 7:45 a.m on March 19. In order to participate in the testing, applicants must contact the Police Dept. by phone or email no later than March 17.

For all information about the testing see the OC Police Dept. Web site. Don’t delay, because you need to bring with you a physician’s statement and a completed OCPD application. The Web site includes a map showing the testing location, which might be difficult to find if you don’t look at the map.

The additional testing is being scheduled to make sure the Police Dept. has sufficient qualified applicants to fill the summer seasonal positions.

A number of veteran year-round officers accepted the town’s offer of early retirement in a cost-saving effort last fall, so the town is below its normal year-round staffing level. The Town Council has delayed hiring several additional year-round officers due to budgeting considerations.

As a result, the town has decided to increase its compliment of seasonal officers from the 100 hired in 2010, to as many as 140 in 2011.

Additionally, the Ocean City Beach Patrol has one test date scheduled for surf rescue technicians, to be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 11, 2011, at Dorchester Street and the Boardwalk. See the Beach Patrol Jobs Page for detailed information on preparing for the test.

Please contact the Beach Patrol by phone or email to make sure the test is still scheduled. The June 11 test for surf rescue technicians will be held only if the Beach Patrol has additional openings to fill at that time.
