The Horry County Sheriff's Office assumed control of J. Reuben Long Detention Center on July 1, 1999 from the Horry County Government. Since that time, J. Reuben Long Detention Center's goal is to create safer communities through secure custodial supervision of inmates. This is accomplished by engaging in collaborative partnerships with the Horry County Criminal Justice System that affords inmates the chance to become productive citizens of their community after their re-entry into society. Our mission is to uphold the highest degree of professionalism by maintaining the principles of integrity, service to others, and implementing proactive inmate programs to benefit the inmate population.
As with all employees of the Horry County Sheriff's Office, our staff is "committed to excellence" by being responsive to the needs of the Horry County citizens and the inmates under our care, custody and control.
