Not Really Anything News Worthy

Posted by:

Last night, one of our sergeants stopped a car for having a headlight out. This is not really anything news worthy. Officers stop cars for these types of violations all the time. They result in a warning, and the driver is asked to get it fixed. But officers are also trained to look beyond the routine with these “minor” violations. The driver of this particular vehicle just happened to be wanted out of Spartanburg City. I’m pretty sure he ...

Our officer was able ...

It’s Monday, the start to a new work week for most people

Posted by:

This Monday, September 15, 2014, is different, though.  It will be a day when one of our own will be laid to rest in Charleston, SC.  It will be ...
