The Ocean City Police Department took part in Project “Saving Our Loved Ones” (S.O.L.O.) over the St. Patrick’s Day weekend. Project S.O.L.O. is a statewide initiative to combat impaired driving and underage drinking to ultimately save lives and reduce roadway deaths. Numerous officers were deployed during the initiative which resulted in 12 individuals being charged with driving under the influence, 2 criminal arrests, 3 alcohol citations, 13 equipment repair orders, 35 citations, and 77 warnings.
Citizens are reminded that officers are always patrolling the area for impaired drivers and are encouraged to utilize the many sober driving options available to them including the municipal bus service and private taxis.
