No Alcohol Rule & New Spit Security
Based on community, State, and local law enforcement feedback regarding an escalation of excessive drinking, partying, and unsafe behavior on the Spit (and neighboring community), we have made the following changes and need your support.
Effectiveimmediately, we will be sending a clear message through our communities and through social media that there is a zero-tolerance policy of no alcohol on the Spit. Save Popponesset Bay has hired Pilgrim Security to help with education and enforcement and to collaborate with the Police and the Harbormaster. It is unfortunate that it has come to this, but we need to communicate that the Spit is “dry” and that the existing No Alcohol Rule will be enforced.
Pilgrim Security comes highly recommended by members of the Mashpee Police and has experience restoring party beaches to family destinations. The supervisor is a former police officer who has worked on the Spit and lives locally. He is committed to hiring professionals that will build relationships with all of you, ensure the Spit is welcoming to our community, and that we restore our beloved Spit to being a safe, family friendly destination once more.
Please help us spread the word.
Thank you in advance for all you do to help ensure that the Spit is sustainable for our families and for generations to come.
