Seasonal Police Officer Numbers Down In Dewey Beach

Posted: Updated:

DEWEY BEACH, Del. - Applications for seasonal police officers are reportedly down in Dewey Beach.

Sergeant Cliff Dempsey with the Dewey Beach Police Department tells 47 ABC, they cannot speculate as to why the numbers have declined over the past few years, but they feel economy and pay may be contributing factors.

Sergeant Dempsey says the positions are essential during their busy summer months. While they reportedly do have the numbers they need this summer, about 20 officers, he says they are concerned what will happen if the numbers continue to decline.
