Welcome to the Horry County Sheriff's Office website.  I hope that you find the information we have provided to be useful and easy to locate.  Our staff is working hard to offer the insight we believe you most desire to have into your community, your County, and your Sheriff's Office.  Each member of our staff understands that we are here to assist with your needs and ensure that your experience in Horry County, whether you are a guest or resident, is as enjoyable and safe as possible.  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.



****Please be cautious of anyone calling you to say that you have a warrant or will have a warrant for your arrest for not paying your taxes or not coming to jury duty.  They will ask you to bring them certified funds, a money order or a cashiers check.  The Horry County Sheriff's Office WILL NOT request any money from you, these phone calls are scams, they are very convincing and even frightening to some individuals.  Please feel free to contact us at the Sheriff's Office if you have any questions at 843-915-5450.****

****Non Ferrous Metal Permits, the office to obtain your permit has been moved to 1201 3rd Avenue, Conway, SC, the old Court House.  The office it located near the front entrance of the building.****
