Spring has sprung, and it's time for college students to hit the beaches.
Before they come to the beach, the Orange Beach Police Department wants to make sure spring breakers get the message--
"If you are looking for a party town, the City of Orange Beach is not it."
Spring break is almost upon us and as a reminder to all of our incoming guests, the Orange Beach Police Department issued a warning, reiterating the city is a family-oriented community.

Here's the full announcement:
Attention 2018 Spring Break guests: The Orange Beach Police Department welcomes all guests to the City of Orange Beach for Spring Break. Our city is a beautiful, family-oriented beach resort community. Over the past two years, we have experienced increases in underage drinking, disorderly conduct and illegal drug use during Spring Break.
The Orange Beach Police Department will utilize all available resources at our disposal to maintain order and continue to provide a safe, enjoyable experience for all visitors.
If you are looking for a party town, the City of Orange Beach is not it.
Underage drinking, illegal drug use, disorderly conduct or any other breach of the peace will not be tolerated. If you choose to violate the law, you will go to jail. THIS IS YOUR WARNING.
