Every year on Long Beach Island, our 8,500 year-round residents are joined by approximately 200,000 seasonal residents and visitors from late June to early September. While nearly every demographic vacations in Long Beach Township, it is inevitable that our Police will encounter underage drinking and underage possession of alcohol during many of their calls for service. In an effort to decrease underage drinking and underage possession of alcohol with other surrounding Police Departments, we have begun to endorse the DART Prevention Coalition. DART is a County-wide program whose goal is to engage youth and residents in the process of reducing substance abuse.
For more information do not hesitate to contact Sgt. Ferguson (609-494-3322 ext. 2428) with any questions or concerns.
