Kerry Foy was selected as the Civilian of the Quarter for Quarter Three 2021.

The department noted that Foy adjusted to pandemic protocols and any challenge that came her way with compassion and that her contribution to the records office supports the police department and keeps them running efficiently.
SPO Kyle Alexander was selected as the Officer of the Quarter for Quarter Three 2021. Alexander took on more responsibility in the department’s police explorer program. Over the quarter he coordinated a schedule for the program which allowed the members to learn a variety of law enforcement topics. Alexander coordinated with outside agencies and brought the explorers out to community events. The group participated in the Sweetgrass Festival, Coffee with a Cop, the 9/11 Silent Walk, and the Cooper River Bridge Run. The department wrote that “as a post advisor, Alexander was a big part of the success of the explore program.”
Sergeant Trevor Simmons was selected as the Supervisor of the Quarter for Quarter Three 2021.

No matter what was thrown his way, SGT Simmons handled his duties without delay and efficiently.”
