HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) – Members of the community wanted one Horry County officer to stay hydrated while on the job, even providing the means to do so.

The Horry County Police Department posted a photo of a card given to a corporal who was working a traffic check this week.

“We want you to know that we appreciate the job that you do,” the card read. “Keep working hard for our community.”

Inside the card was $2 so the officer could buy “a cold or hot drink.”

“We can’t express how much we appreciate your support. We’re fortunate to live and work in this #community,” an HCPD tweet stated.
