POINT PLEASANT BEACH - Investigators from Consumer Affairs were at the Jersey Shore Tuesday to kick off a two-month program intended to protect visitors from fraudulent or unsafe businesses.

Representatives from the state and Ocean County were on the Point Pleasant Beach boardwalk, making sure shops are pricing their items fairly and ensuring the games kids love so much, are on the up and up.

Investigators will be patrolling the boardwalk until the end of the summer as part of Safe Summer 2014.
