A Message from Chief Dale Long
The City of Conway is a historic riverfront town established in 1732. The Riverwalk along the Waccamaw River is one of many reasons so many travel to Conway, and many decide to stay! We are home to Coastal Carolina University, Horry Georgetown Technical College, and Miller Motte Technical College. Opportunities abound in our great little city!

Conway is, and has always been my home. I know the quality of life I want for my family, and am committed to bringing it to everyone by ensuring the safety, peace, and opportunities Conway has to offer.

The Conway Police Department strives to daily live up to our motto CPD- Committed, Professional, and Dedicated. We are in a partnership with our community- residents, businesses, and visitors, to offer the highest level of service and assistance. Our authority is vested in us by these very stakeholders, and we work to honor and maintain the trust given to us. I ask you to partner with us, because of our vision: "Together, Building a Better Community"!

Mission Statement

Commendations or Complaints
The best way to commend the actions of a police employee is to write a brief letter (or e-mail) describing the incident and the actions you think were exceptional.  Information such as the date, time and   location will help identify the employee if you do not know his or her name.  If you choose not to write, you may ask to speak with the employee’s supervisor and make a verbal commendation.  Commendations received by the Chief of Police are forwarded to the employee and his or her  personnel file. Although employees do not expect to be thanked for everything they do, recognition of exceptional service is always appreciated.
An inquiry or complaint may be made at any time; however, complaints should be made within a reasonable time after the alleged misconduct occurred to help ensure evidence is still available and recollections of the incident are fresh. To file a complaint, you may contact our office at (843) 248-1790 and ask to speak with a Watch Commander.  After the complaint has been received, you will be contacted by a Department supervisor.  The complaint review procedure is not intended to resolve or mitigate issues surrounding traffic citations or arrest for which criminal charges have been issued; such matters are to be resolved through the judicial system.  More Information.
