Dewey Beach Says Shape Up Or Ship Out To All Visitors
From the desk of TJ Redefer, Mayor of Dewey Beach
Most people work all year for their week in Dewey Beach. Others work their entire lives to live in Dewey Beach. Those are the people we will protect as we make Dewey Beach the best it has ever been. Please come and enjoy all our town has to offer – there is something for everyone to enjoy.
However, we will no longer tolerate bad behavior from our visitors. All should know that Dewey Beach is ready and we will act swiftly to protect life and property.
This note is to give thanks to the Dewey Beach PD, the State Police and all the police departments throughout the County and the State that came to town Friday, Saturday & Sunday night. This type of extra police work has been going on for years in hopes that we will never need the extra help. This Memorial Day weekend we were glad we had the support. Two officers were injured protecting our Town and we all hope their injuries heal quickly and without complications. Heroes…are those that serve. This incident was dispersed in a matter of minutes and could have been much worse without our Heroes stepping in and taking action and we all Thank You.
If you come to Dewey Beach to cause trouble and break the law you will be arrested. The cooperation among Police departments throughout the State and County is impressive and we will continue to build those partnerships. The cooperation among residents and the business community is equally impressive and we will build on those partnerships. All of our stakeholders are together on this unifying mission to make Dewey Beach the best it has ever been.
