MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Myrtle Beach Police are still seeking volunteers to serve as Community Ambassadors for the Memorial Day weekend and Carolina Country Music Festival.

The Community Ambassador program, which was revamped back in March, will help officers educate the public and visitors during large events.

For example, during Bikefest, the ambassadors will be on the streets informing visitors about the traffic loop, and giving other valuable information.

When large crowds are in Myrtle Beach, officers are constantly busy handling crime and other situations, the ambassadors help alleviate some of the duties, so officers can focus more on keeping you safe.

There are two scheduled training days for people that are interested in participating: Wednesday, April 29, and Wednesday, May 13. A morning and afternoon session will be held on each day at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. at the Myrtle Beach Police Annex, 3340 Mustang Avenue. Volunteers are only required to attend one session, but training is mandatory.

If you are interested in being a part of the Ambassadors program, contact Krystal Dotson at 843-918-1976 or by email kdotson@cityofmyrtlebeach.com
