OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP/WBOC)- Police in Ocean City say calls for service increased last year, but arrests dropped.

The Ocean City Police Department's year-end report was released last week to the town's mayor and council.

The report shows that the department's total number of service calls was up 17.5 percent over 2012. Officials say that increase was due to significant increase in officer-initiated actions. The number of calls for service generated by citizen complaints decreased last year.

Police say the number of arrests dropped 30 percent - from 4,355 in 2012 to 3,021 last year. Meanwhile, the number of citations and warnings increased about 30 percent from 20,124 in 2012 to 26,314 last year.
