This is a touching tribute to our men and women in blue. Honoring the police who made the ultimate sacrifice with their lives for our safety. Packed with information and a great way for the public to see the world of law enforcement.

I visited the museum with my son on a field trip. It was very informative and had so much information on the law enforcement agencies of sc as well as a touching memorial for fallen officers.

The hall of fame/museum is a fantastic place to go. The memorial room contains a book that has a page for each officer that has passed since 1797 that has a picture (in most cases) and a description of each incident that took the officers life. The museum part has some great displays showcasing law enforcement over the years.

This is a very good little museum dedicated to law enforcement in South Carolina. Has a nice collection of firearms and display of famed FBI agent Melvin Purvis. Lots of badges and patches from agencies around the state. An old jail cell is neat to look at. there were old detective instruments and such on display as well. A room... More
