Myrtle Beach has six new police officers

The Myrtle Beach Police Department welcomed six new officers during ceremonies Friday at the Ted C. Collins Law Enforcement Center. Police Officers Daniel Formato, Brian Hall, Tim Larsen, Patrick Ogden, Anna Olson and Michael Taylor just graduated from the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy. After taking their oaths of office, family members and friends then helped pin on their new badges. Special congratulations go to Officer Formato, far right, who won both the J.P. Strom Award as the top academic student and the Challenge Run Ribbon at the academy.
