The Patrol Division is a unique division as it holds most of the personnel within the police department. Because of this, it is often referred to as the “backbone” of the department. The Patrol Division is made up of five separate units to include Uniform Patrol, the Waterfront Unit, the Traffic Unit, the Beach Patrol Unit and the Family Services Unit. Each unit has lieutenant as well as direct first line supervisors who monitor each shift. The officers within this Division are responsible for the general service to our community and visitors as they are the first responders to calls for service as well as initiating calls throughout the work day. These are the officers that are seen regularly throughout the Myrtle Beach community interacting with the public on a daily basis.
