MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – Many agencies nationwide are having a hard time finding and hiring law enforcement officers. The South Carolina Highway Patrol is trying to find more troopers but they’re not having a difficult time getting applicants.
There are already more than 700 troopers working for the agency and with this year’s extra resources, they are looking to hire 100 more.
It’s not that troopers are leaving their force, leaders simply want to expand it.
According to the South Carolina department of public safety, in 2015, there were 199 deadly crashes in South Carolina.
Just three months into this year there have already been 188 deadly crashes.
