Cayce DPS Director, Byron Snellgrove, stated, “The citizens of Cayce should be rest assured that we have more than enough assets and officers across the city to handle any situation that arises.”

Be sure to lock your vehicle and keep all valuables out of site. Most items reported stolen from vehicles are a result of the vehicle being unlocked and/or valuables left out in the open and easily seen through the windows.

DPS asks to please remember that crowds and traffic are expected to be heavy so be patient, remain vigilant and report all suspicious activity. In the event of an emergency please call 911. If you need to reach our dispatch center for non-emergencies, please call 803-794-0456.
