The Horry County Police Department is a full-service law enforcement agency. Established as the primary county law enforcement agency in 1959 by legislative decree and overwhelmingly re-endorsed by our citizens in a 1998 referendum, the Horry County Police Department is the only remaining county police department in the State of South Carolina.


Holiday Card Contest

Horry County kids are invited to participate in the 2022 HCPD Kids Holiday Card Contest. The winning design will be featured on the Horry County Police Department greeting card.

Kids ages 5 to 18 can use a standard sheet of printer paper (8 ½” x 11”, full size or folded in half) to sketch or paint their idea for the HCPD 2022 holiday card. Custom artwork is encouraged; computer generated designs cannot be submitted.  

New in 2022—this year’s theme is “partnership.”
HCPD couldn’t do what we do without the help of others, including you. Keeping everyone safe is a shared goal and responsibility. Card contest participants are asked to showcase partnership in some way in their design.     

All artwork must be submitted online. Please scan or take a picture of the artwork and submit it using this form. Artwork must be submitted by Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2022.

The top designs, as chosen by the Chiefs and Citizens Police Academy, will be featured on HCPD social media pages and the community will vote for the top three winners! The top three winners will each receive a special holiday stocking filled with seasonal treats.
