A Kent County grand jury has indicted a Dover police officer on a felony assault charge over an alleged confrontation that left a man unconscious and with a broken jaw in August 2013. A camera in a Dover police car captured Corporal Thomas Webster responding to a reported fight at a gas station, holding a suspect, Lateef Dickerson at gunpoint.
DNREC hosted a pair of public workshops in Milford and Bethany Beach on May 1 and 2 on changes to state’s Beach Preservation Act. Last revised in 1983, the Beach Preservation Act seek to mitigate the effects of beach erosion and property damage from coastal flooding and storms. The latest draft seeks to redefine several terms in the Beach Preservation Act, including “regulated areas.” These are areas along the shore that the state can regulate construction in favor of protecting beaches, dunes and properties.
