Welcome to Myrtle Beach!


Here's what's happening...


Orange Box  Plan calls for 70 new police positions...  The Myrtle Beach City Council has endorsed a plan to add 10 new police positions per year during the next seven years.  The plan also addresses other law enforcement goals, such as increased visibility, use of technology, retention of existing officers, greater communication with the public, crime prevention through environmental design and new deployment strategies.  The full seven-year plan is available on-line for your review.
