Effective September 13, Public Safety Director Jay Fernandez promoted Thomas G. “Tommy” Dennis to the position of Chief of Police for the City of North Myrtle Beach.

“Tommy performed in the role of Interim Chief of Police just as we thought he would,” Fernandez said. “He is effective, fair-minded, has the ability to see the big picture and at the same time can zero in to help resolve specific challenges. He effectively relates to all types of people. We are glad for Tommy and know that our staff, our taxpayers and visitors will benefit from his leadership.”
