Military Obligations

Many applicants have questions about whether their current or future military plans or obligations will conflict with their duties with the Ocean City Police Department.

The OCPD respects the military obligations of all service men and women. We will make accommodation for your annual training, weekend drills, or any other military obligation. The only time we cannot make an accommodation is during the academy as Seasonal Police Officers are required to attend every day of their five week academy. If you anticipate a conflict during this time, it would be necessary for you to request a postponement through your military chain of command.

If you need to leave the OCPD before the end of the summer for training, school etc., this is also acceptable. We ask that you let us know about these obligations as early as possible and provide written documentation for your supervisors.
