Surfside Police conducting checkpoints Saturday

SURFSIDE, SC (WMBF) – The Surfside Beach Police Department will host a public safety checkpoint in Surfside Beach Saturday night. Checkpoints are provided to ensure highway safety and prevent reckless driving. 

According to Surfside Police, the checkpoint will take place on Glenn’s Bay Road (west of Highway 17 business), from 8 p.m.-11 p.m., and will be staffed with officers from throughout the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit. This operation is part of the statewide Law Enforcement Network highway safety program.

Horry and Georgetown officers participate in the operations. SBPD is expecting approximately 60 officers to participate in the operation Saturday.
Officers will meet prior to the operation to discuss LEN business and brief on the operation.

SBPD Chief of Police Rodney Keziah said “the regularly scheduled checkpoints move around to different parts of the two-county area, and are designed solely for the purpose of improving motorist safety.”

“These operations not only publicize local agencies’ dedication to highway safety,” Keziah added, “but deter dangerous offenses such as driving under the influence and reckless driving.”
