A number of our citizens have contacted the Hanahan Police Department regarding the police activity on Valley Drive yesterday, 03/15/2018.
The Hanahan Police Department, Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office and the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office assisted the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) in an active investigation SLED is conducting.
We want to ensure our citizens that there is no risk or danger to the general public and this is an isolated incident. We have no further information to release on this incident as we are not the primary investigating agency.
We also want to remind citizens to stay clear of police activity. Your presence often times hinders our investigation and can jeopardize your safety. Our job is to keep the citizens safe within our community and deploying resources to keep the general public away from a police scene can slow the investigation.
Police Chief Dennis Turner
