Body

The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Department has staked a claim in Calabash.

The department opened a new sub-station in this southern corner of the county.

The office is in the Carolina Shores Resort, and being leased for a dollar a year. Any additional charges will be covered using seized drug money.

Both law enforcement officers and residents say the sub-station was needed.

“It’s more economical than having your own police force where you’ll have to outfit everyone, pay for training equipment etc, and also it’ll be ease of access for the citizens to have and in that area to handle administrative matters, to take incident reports, things like that,” said Clint Simpson of the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office.

TJ Cartorette works in Calabash and welcomes the new station. “Always need more patrol, for you know drug trafficking, whatever, always good to have an officer around, emergencies.”

The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office has plans to open another sub-station in Leland.
