Increased Law Enforcement Coverage Coming

Beginning in March, the Charleston County Sherriff's Office (CCSO) will permanently assign four full time, experienced deputies to Kiawah. These deputies will cover the first shift, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. They will be fully equipped and in marked vehicles. The Town will compensate the CCSO for this added level of coverage, just as the Town has done in the past with supplemental deputies. Read more on the background of this change here
