The Horry County Police Department is a full-service law enforcement agency. Established as the primary county law enforcement agency in 1959 by legislative decree and overwhelmingly re-endorsed by our citizens in a 1998 referendum, the Horry County Police Department is the only remaining county police department in the State of South Carolina. We believe that our survival is the direct result of professional and futuristic leadership and the delivery of law enforcement services with an emphasis upon sensitive, ethical and consistent concern for community based problem solving combined with effective and efficient traditional emergency responses.

As you will notice, when you refer to our mission statement, our philosophy is highly geared toward treating our peers as well as our citizens with courtesy, dignity and respect. We emphasize in our recruitment efforts that we are looking for good people to train as good police officers. We believe that a person lacking quality characteristics cannot simply be turned into a productive and representative police officer.

We have worked very hard to become a contemporary law enforcement agency constantly striving to improve technology, training, cultural diversification, education, physical fitness, youth orientation, and high morale. We consider our work environment and profession as a major factor in the stability of our community and our personal welfare. We are committed to providing career opportunity based upon merit, skill, self-improvement, performance and initiative for our staff of 315 employees.
