Public Safety

The overall safety and security for town citizens and visitors (from youth through senior) is very important. It is the town's goal to empower citizens with the tools, information and technology to reduce the impact of emergency and disaster situations; and creating a safe environment to improve the quality of life for all. We rely on you, the residents of this town, to do your part. You CAN make a difference in your community!

The Town of North Beach is patrolled and serviced by Twin Beaches Patrol, who are deputies from Calvert County assigned specifically to North Beach & Chesapeake Beach. The deputies cannot be everywhere at one time, and that is where we, the residents come in. It is up to each of us to do our part to continue to keep North Beach the great town that it is. We do this by getting to know our neighbors and looking out for each other and the town. We are neighbors looking out for neighbors.

“If you see something, say something”.

Not sure when to call, or if you should call at all, take a look at the informational documents. It has many hints & tips to keep you, your property, and the town safe.

If you’d prefer to talk in person, you are encouraged to attend the monthly Town Council meeting, held the 2nd Thursday of each month, 7 pm, at the Town Hall. You can share during public comment, or talk one on one with a Twin Beaches officer.  They are always in attendance.
