The North Myrtle Beach Department of Public Safety Uniform Patrol is where it all starts. The officers handle a variety of calls and complaints day and night. Our officers are some of the finest anywhere in the United States. Duel certification is a must in Public Safety. After initial hiring, pre-training, and exhaustive testing, our PSO's attend Basic Police and Fire Training to become State Certified. Once the recruits graduate and return to North Myrtle Beach, they undergo Field Training with experienced officers in Police and Fire related fields. After successfully completing a probationary period, and serving with the department, they will have opportunities to work with specialty teams.
