How can I create a community watch for my neighborhood?
A Community Watch is a crime prevention program that involves citizens working together with each other and law enforcement to reduce crime and victimization in their communities. Contact the Myrtle Beach Police Department`s crime prevention officer at (843) 918-1806. He will let you know if there is one already for your area or how to start one for your community.

When and where are Taxi chauffeur`s permits issued?
New or renewal Taxi chauffeur`s permits are issued every Thursday from 10am to 11am (Holidays excluded) at the MBPD Annex building located at 3340 Mustang St on the former Air Force base. The cost is $50 per year and you must have a 10 year driving record (from all states going back for 10 years), a SLED criminal history and your City of Myrtle Beach Chauffeur’s Permit application.

Are all crime reports investigated by a detective?
No. Patrol supervisors review and determine which cases are assigned to the Investigations Division. Detective supervisors then review the cases and assign them to detectives to be investigated. Whether a case is assigned to a detective or not is based on the type of crime and evidentiary solvability factors. However, all crime reports are reviewed by supervisors.
