It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Conway Police Department’s
website. Conway has a rich history dating back to colonial times. Established
in 1732, Conway is one of South Carolina’s oldest towns. Due to its location
and historical connection to the Waccamaw River, Conway is often referred to as
the “River town.” Located just 20 minutes from Myrtle Beach, Conway encompasses
over 22 square miles and is home to approximately 18,000 residents; it is also
home to Coastal Carolina University and Horry Georgetown Technical College.
Our agency consists of 61 trained, professional and dedicated
personnel who continuously strive to provide the highest quality police
services to our citizens and visitors alike. The men and women of our
department embrace the community-oriented policing philosophy and believe it
takes all community stakeholders together to build a better community. Our goal
is to continue to make Conway a great place to live, visit, shop and dine,
while maintaining the quality of life for which Conway is famous.
hope you will find this site both informational and helpful and, as
always, we invite your comments on how we may better serve you. To that end, I encourage you to take a few moments to complete a “Citizen’s Survey” located on this site.

Chief of Police
