There are a new set of wheels on Holden Beach. There will now be police officers patrolling the beach strand. They said they will be acting as a resource for the community helping with safety and enforcement.

Tourists and residents both agree that having a police presence on the beach makes them feel safe. The police department said they are not anxious to issue citations, but will talk with violators if they see someone breaking an ordinance. “If we see someone breaking a rule, we have a word with the folks, typically they comply, and we have no problems,” said Chief Wally Layne.

The town of Holden Beach reorganized it’s funding, and acquired $30,000 from the towns occupancy tax. That money, if used, will help pay for the officer who is patrolling the beach during the summer months.
