I am proud to be the Sheriff of Horry County and I am extremely proud of the fine men and women of this Office who dedicate themselves to serving our citizens with a professional approach and a positive attitude. While I am proud of this website, I am also an "old-fashioned" kind of guy who believes the convenience of e-mail and internet should never replace the personal touch that can be felt during a telephone call or a friendly office visit. For that reason, we have provided our telephone number with our office address and welcome you to call or stop by at any time.
