Bethune dissolves police department
Placeholder Image
Bethune Town Council voted to dissolve the Bethune Police Department (BPD) at its March meeting after determining the town does not have enough money to hire a new police chief. Mayor Carlisle Davis said there are a number of police departments across the state who have one-man police departments that are being forced to completely shut their departments down. Funding is the issue, he said, so now Bethune must rely on services from the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO).
