Consider This: Meetings with police provide a chance to better your community

People living in Loris have an opportunity to make a big impact in their community.

The Horry County Police department is holding a meeting next week so they can talk face to face with residents about what is going on in their neighborhoods.

Unfortunately, this area of Horry County is dealing with a big drug and gang problem which contribute to violent crime being committed.

The worst thing than can happen is for residents to ignore the problem and keep a low profile.  This is a chance to start the conversation with the officers who are dedicated to serving and protecting your share ideas...and to lay the foundation for change.

Consider This:  Loris is not the only community facing these issues.  The leadership change in the Horry County Police Department is apparent.  So, now is the time for everybody to take an active role in making this area a safe and prosperous place to live, work and raise a family and to do that we have to start with building trust.
