Yemassee Police Department


The Yemassee Police Department, which was established in 1904, continues to perform its function of serving and protecting the citizens to the best of its abilities. Our dedicated, professional police force of men and women recognize that the people in our community are our most important customers, and they work in partnership with all people to solve problems that affect public safety.

This is also accomplished by collaborating with citizens and neighborhood and community groups to better understand the needs of the community so that we may develop solutions to problems and provide efficient responses.

Through a cooperative working relationship with our local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, we take a proactive approach to law enforcement knowing that partnerships and cooperation are needed to ensure protection of persons and property.

As Chief of Police, it is my responsibility to ensure that our community is provided the best possible law enforcement services.  I am dedicated to making sure all police related services are provided with Professionalism, Integrity, Respect and Fairness.
