Beach Patrol


The beach patrol section of the South Precinct is responsible for the beachfront areas of the unincorporated areas of Horry County. The section consists of 1 Sergeant, 2 Corporals, 8 Beach Patrol Officers, 2 Parking Enforcement Officers, and 1 Beachfront Director. Beach patrol officers drive 4-wheel drive patrol vehicles that enable them to perform their duties on the soft sand. In addition, they patrol on 4-wheel ATVs during times of high tide and when the beach is congested with swimmers and sunbathers. Jet skis and jet drive boats are used to patrol the coastal waters and in rescue situations.

In addition to being  state certified officers, beach patrol officers receive specialized training in ocean life guarding, CPR-PR, personal watercraft operation, first aid and participate in open water training throughout the season.
