Dewey Beach is worried about the drop in seasonal police applicants.

Sergeant Cliff Dempsey with the Dewey Beach Police Department told WMDT that the number of applicants has declined over the years.

He suggested that the pay and economy could be having an impact.

They have the 20 officers that they need this summer.

But Sergeant Dempsey says the department is concerned about the coming years if the numbers decline.
