Consider This: Police demonstrate good leadership

Three people are sitting in jail right now…charged with killing two store clerks in Horry County.

The crime spree was terrifying -  three armed robberies, seeing the surveillance pictures, and not knowing where they could strike again.

But law enforcement in the area immediately reacted to get the suspects off the streets.

At least eight different agencies worked together around the clock to find them. And once the evidence was gathered and the arrests were made, a news conference was held to let the media and the public know the new developments.

Consider This: This case was difficult and one that had a lot of people questioning what was going on. Law enforcement could easily have not spoken about the case as they chased down leads, but they made sure we knew they were working hard to protect the community. That's the type of leadership we need, one that keeps us informed and safe.
