Message from Sheriff P. J. Tanner
Here at the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office, we strive to keep a constant watch on crime trends in order to better inform our residents and guests of proactive steps that can be taken to deter neighborhood crime. Since Beaufort County is one of South Carolina's fastest growing counties, this can be a challenge as the demographics, landscape and communities are ever changing. We are poised to meet that challenge as our deputies are equipped with some of the best law enforcement equipment and training in the state.
As you may already know, I am privileged to have grown up here and to have experienced the majority of my law enforcement career here. I consider the job of protecting Beaufort County's quality of life as not only a professional goal, but as a personal mission. If you ever have any questions or suggestions to help with this mission, please feel free to call my office. I believe that together, we can improve the quality of life for all, while making safety our most important goal.
