Due to the recent spike in overdoses in Sussex County, South Bethany Officers partnered with Brandywine Counseling & Community Services and received the Delaware Overdose Survival Education (DOSE) training in overdose prevention and rescue. All officers are now trained in the use of Naloxone, also known as Narcan. South Bethany is now one of several police departments in Sussex County to carry the overdose-reversing drug.

South Bethany Officers Cpl. Patrick Wiley and Cpl. Mark Burton teamed up with the Millville Volunteer Fire Company, Bethany Beach Volunteer Fire Company and Ocean View PD for Rescue Task Force Training.

Recently there has been a spike of overdoses in the neighboring areas. We would like to see people get the help they need before it is too late. Please take a minute to read about some upcoming community sessions on this topic.

😀😇 St Martha’s 12th Annual International Student Welcome to the Community Picnic😇😀 South Bethany Police is proud to have been a part of this very successful event on Thursday June 22, 2017. About 95 International Students from at least 11 countries attended. This Picnic helped International Students staying in the South Bethany/ Bethany/ Ocean View areas by: *Improving bike safety. Parishioners helped students mount bike lights (a Bethany Beach Police donation) and give out free reflective safety vests/back packs (a South Bethany Police donation). *Expanding informal contacts between Students and the South Bethany Police and Bethany Beach Emergency Medical Service providers (who sat among Students). Our very own Patrolman Loulou was able to help make Students feel more comfortable about seeking help if ever worried about their safety or health. We are looking forward to participating again next year!! Stay safe.
