Myrtle Beach Police Department Fallen Officer Memorial Fountain

In 2014 the Myrtle Beach Police Department constructed the Myrtle Beach Police Department’s Fallen Officer Memorial Fountain in honor of officers killed in the line of duty. In addition to the fountain, pavers line the fountain grounds that are dedicated to officers, families and community members to honor years of service to the Myrtle Beach community. Several pavers are still available. If you are interested in being a part of the memorial fountain grounds please contact Captain Marty Brown at (843) 918-1307.
