The Horry County law enforcement community collaborates closely on a daily basis to keep residents and visitors safe, said HCPD Chief Joseph Hill. “One recent joint operation led to 12 arrests. Perhaps more importantly, the operation demonstrated how effective teamwork is to solve problems. It is our goal to ensure criminals know they will not be spared until they face justice.
