OCEAN CITY, MD – (February 20, 2019): The Ocean City Police Department (OCPD) has released their 2018 Annual Report, highlighting a fourth consecutive year of historic low crime rates.

In 2018, the OCPD experienced a 22 percent decrease in serious crime in comparison to the previous five years, and a 15 percent decrease from 2017. Most notably, the report shows that there was a 40 percent decrease in rapes and a 36 percent decrease in robberies. Additionally, citizen-initiated calls for service decreased by over 1,300 calls – an indicator that officers were proactive and addressed issues before citizens took notice.

“After achieving yet another year of historic lows in crime, the officers and staff members that make up the Ocean City Police Department continue to exceed my expectations,” commented Chief Ross Buzzuro. “The facts and figures within this report are a testament to their hard work and dedication to keeping this town and its citizens safe.”

In addition to crime and enforcement statistics, the Annual Report highlights the OCPD’s focus on community engagement. This includes efforts to join other agencies in homeless outreach and new community events, such as Cones with Cops and the Mounted Unit Open House. Accomplishments of each of the three divisions of the OCPD are also emphasized in the report.

  1. They all have very sharp pencils. They think the average people are stupid enough to believe this crap. Only ones that I know that believe it are the liberal democrats and that is because they don’t have a brain.

  3. This is complete and utter BULLSHIT!! We constantly hear about the crime and the serious crimes committed in Ocean City. First of all that dumb ass “Come-Here” police chief forgot to mention who did the study. “The Uniform Crime Report (UCR) is submitted to the Federal Bureau of Investigation each year by the Ocean City Police
    Department and includes all serious crimes which occurred in Ocean City. ” That means they can put any numbers they want in that report to be submitted. Ocean City is another Shit Hole just like da Ghetto ‘Bury is.

  4. In the cover letter: “Additionally, citizen-initiated calls for service decreased by over 1,300 calls – an indicator that officers were proactive and addressed issues before citizens took notice.”

    In the pdf: “In 2018, the number of officer calls for service increased by over 6,000 calls – another example of officers being proactive and dedicated to duty.”

    This is babbling Bullsh!t by this idiot they hired as the Chief of Police.

  5. We are living in the days when political hacks will say anything and expect people to believe it. Unfortunately some people do believe it. These chiefs see what others are lying about with no consequencies and must say to themselves, “I can lie and get away with it also”.

  6. Liars! Rape is now counted as “Ruff Sex” and theft is called “Alternative shopping” drug use is “Self medicating”. Crime is very high in OC, but they lie to keep stupid tourists coming!

  7. You are correct 4:26. In other towns such as Salisbury and Crisfield they lie just to get a raise and make themselves look good. Any fool knows that crime is up in all those towns. Hard to believe that the city councils let them get away with all the lies and BS.
