K9 Vest Donation

The Hanahan Police Department wants to thank A.T.P. Gun Shop and their staff for donating a bullet proof vest to our K9 Unit. Just like our two-legged officers, our four-legged officers are also issued body armor to protect them. This vest has been issued to K9 Maverick and he took a few minutes out of his training today at the City of Hanahan Amphitheater to model his new body armor. Once again, thank you to A.T.P. Gun Shop for your generous donation to our K9 Unit.

Work on Williams Lane/Foster Creek road project will begin Monday, January 29

(Information was obtained from the Berkeley County School District website on capital projects)

Those living in the area of Bowen’s Corner Elementary School (currently under construction) in Hanahan will soon notice work along the roadways in the area.

Crews will begin working to clear debris and trees in the area of Williams Lane and Foster Creek on Monday, January 29. That work is expected to be complete in about seven days, and work to relocate underground piping and utilities will follow. The work is part of the school construction project, which includes the eventual construction of a roundabout at the intersection of the two roads.

Lane and road closures are not anticipated, but there may be some necessary traffic control at times as trucks and equipment move in and out of the area.


It’s expected all road work related to the school’s construction will be completed during the summer of 2018.

We appreciate your patience as we continue to grow Berkeley County School District.
