Emerald Isle Police Sergeant Mark Odom and Police Officer Tom Duty were seriously injured in an off-duty boating accident on the White Oak River on September 7. Both men are dedicated officers providing exceptional service to the Emerald Isle community, and there have been numerous inquiries from the community asking how people can help.
