Mount Pleasant Police Host BBQ Fundraiser

The Mount Pleasant Police Department will be hosting a BBQ cookout to raise money to help children who may never experience the joy of Christmas. 
By selling BBQ chicken and pulled pork baskets, the Mount Pleasant Police Department is trying to raise enough money to send 10 children on a Christmas shopping spree. These children have been identified through each of the elementary schools located around Mount Pleasant.

“After the success of our first two fundraisers, Team 2 will again be selling lunch out of our Emergency Operations Center at police headquarters,” says Inspector Chip Googe. “The more money we raise, the more children we can take shopping as we are trying to fund 10 but would love to take as many as 15.”

Inspector Googe encourages everyone to come out to 100 Ann Edwards Lane between 11:00am and 2:00pm on August 21, 2015 to take part in this event.

“We will also deliver your lunch if you have 10 or more orders and located in Mount Pleasant,” Googe says. “All you have to do is email and place your delivery order. The vendor will be accepting cash only.”

  • BBQ Chicken Dinner with 2 Sides and a Drink - $10.00
  • Pulled Pork Basket with 1 Side and a Drink - $8.00

Citizen's Police Academy Registration

Mount Pleasant, SC – The Mount Pleasant Police Department is recruiting citizens to enroll in the upcoming Mount Pleasant Citizen Police Academy beginning September 17th 2015. “The Mount Pleasant Police Department believes its service delivery must incorporate a shared responsibility with the community and motivate the strengths of neighborhoods. Critical to the success of this shared responsibility are well informed citizens who have an awareness of the mission, resources, practices, and services of the department. To engage our residents and provide insight to their police department, the Mount Pleasant Police Department has developed a 10-week Citizen’s Police Academy for the residents of Mount Pleasant,” said Mount Pleasant Police Chief Carl Ritchie. 

The Mount Pleasant Citizen’s Police Academy provides a chance for the citizens of Mount Pleasant to understand the various aspects of the police department on a more personal level and to closely interact with its members. A wide range of topics will be discussed to include, but not limited to, national accreditation, operations, uniform patrol, traffic services, and investigations.   “Community involvement is the most powerful, efficient, and practical force any local law enforcement agency has in the fight against crime,” said Crime Prevention Officer Bryce Gregory. “The department wants to encourage the citizens of the Town of Mount Pleasant to become active partners with their police department by working together to identify solutions and strategies to the problems facing Mount Pleasant. More than just an educational opportunity for citizens, the academy has proven beneficial to the police department as well. Several graduates have become volunteers for the police department, good will ambassadors for the Town of Mount Pleasant, and promoters of the academy itself.”  

Meetings are only on Thursdays for 10 weeks from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. These classes will allow flexibility for voluntary portions of the program. Class size will be limited to 20 students. Students must be at least 18 years of age and have successfully completed the application process.  The classes will take place at the Mount Pleasant Police Department, 100 Ann Edwards Lane, Mount Pleasant. Anyone interested in enrolling in the Citizen Police Academy should apply online at or contact Crime Prevention Officer Bryce Gregory at (843) 606-0079 or
