It is our mission to work closely with our community to provide intuitive, effective, and professional public safety services: intuitive to the needs and wants of the citizens of Folly Beach; effective in our most basic purpose of protecting and serving those whom we are sworn to defend; and professional during each and every citizen contact, no matter the reason for the interaction.
What does it mean to be a Public Safety Organization?
Folly Beach Police and Fire functions are both performed in a Public Safety Department. In this type of organization, police personnel are cross-trained and certified in fire-fighting, and our staff fire-fighters are cross-trained and certified in policing. We are also fortunate to be augmented by citizen volunteer firefighters, and firefighters from neighboring jurisdictions working part-time on Folly Beach. Also under the supervision of our department are the Dispatch Center, Animal Services, Beach Patrol, and Parking Enforcement.
