Florence County is proud to host one of the largest and best libraries in South Carolina. The Florence County Sheriff's Office has deputies permanently assigned to the Public Library. This Unit is a valuable asset to the Public as well as the Sheriff's Office.
The Deputies are responsible for upholding and enforcing the laws of the State of South Carolina, as well as the County of Florence. In addition, they help ensure a safe atmosphere for the residents of Florence County. The Deputies perform general law enforcement duties, including patrolling the grounds of the library, checking the property for security, apprehending and arresting suspects, questioning suspects, assisting victims, and maintaining order, among other duties.
