Play It Safe Addresses "Rumors"

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - An Ocean City organization aimed to keep young adults out of trouble is coming under fire. Play It Safe offers substance free events during the most popular high school graduate vacation time. But some believe it may not be a deterrent to crime.

"The graduates had been accused of something which they were not involved in at all. It was a much older group and that can be verified through the ocean city police department," says Donna Greenwood, Chairman of OC Drug & Alcohol. The accusations refer to recent crimes along the boardwalk. But one volunteer took to Facebook to clear up what they calls rumors, saying they have "never had a police involved incident in 24 years."

Authorities say they think the program does help keep so-called senior weekers out of trouble. Mike Levy of the Ocean City Police Department says, "I can tell you with very high degree of certainty that the kids that participate in the "play it safe" events are far less likely to encounter police in a negative way."

Play it Safe has been around for 24 years. Their mission, to encourage high school graduates to make informed healthy decisions and have fun without the use of alcohol or other drugs.
