Judicial Security

The Horry County Sheriff's Office provides security for the Horry County Courthouse (old courthouse) and the Horry County Government and Judicial Center (new courthouse.) If you visit our courthouses, here are a few reminders:

  • Dress appropriately when you are appearing in court for any reason.
  • Everyone will be subject to a search of their person as well as any personal property; therefore, DO NOT bring WEAPONS inside the Courthouse or the Government and Judicial Center. All persons are subject to a security check through the metal detector and personal belongings through the X-Ray machine (NO EXCEPTIONS). If you have a pacemaker, you will be checked by a handheld device.
  • Children are not allowed in the courtroom while court is in session.
