The price of policing in paradise

-A A +A
By Kathryn Jacewicz, Staff writer

Ocean Isle Beach may be a sleepy beach town between September and May with a population of only 508 residents. But during the summer tourist season, the population can increase nearly five times, as up to 25,000 people invade the island per day.

While this may be a boost for the local economy, it takes its toll on the town’s police department that operates with the same amount of officers year-round, only adding a handful of part-timers to patrol the beach during daylight hours.
