Beach Patrol

Special to the PRESS

Labor Day weekend marked the end of the summer season for South Padre Island. The city’s Beach Patrol is calling it one for the record book.

This is the first season in 10 years with no drownings on South Padre Island.

Since July 2008, the South Padre Island Beach Patrol expanded its service to Cameron County’s Isla Blanca and Andy Bowie Parks this July.

City beaches reported zero drownings since the creation of the Beach Patrol.
