"The Movoto list is highly misleading and frankly, inaccurate. Instead of factoring in our nearly 8 million visitors, it based the crime to our resident ratio on a year-round population of just 7,000. Our population rises to about 300,000 people from May to September. Had those statistics been considered, the results would prove the safety and low crime rate of Ocean City. We take tremendous pride in our public safety and actually experienced a 13 percent decrease in criminal offenses in 2013. We are a safe family-friendly resort and we find the "hitch or hang up" in Movoto's list irresponsible and incorrect."
