Fairfield University seniors held their annual Clam Jam party down at the beach today 4/26/2014. There was an extremely heavy police presence including a DUI checkpoint, Fire Department personnel, EMS, bicycle officers and horse mounted authorities. Michael O'Rourke, president of the condo association at Lantern Point, explained, "it's a much more controlled event this year. We brought in different security to help protect the property." Fairfield University senior and beach resident, Courtney Carol, described, "it was different from other years because the police were successful in maintaining order."
