A Message from Sheriff P.J. Tanner

I was born, raised and feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to spend the vast majority of my law enforcement career, which began in 1981, right here in Beaufort County. I consider it an honor to continue to serve as Beaufort County Sheriff, since first being elected in 1998.

As your elected Sheriff, I have taken an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of South Carolina and of the United States, and it is my job to ensure that the Constitutional rights of all Beaufort County residents and guests are upheld. At the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office, an internationally accredited law enforcement agency since 2010, our operations are guided by recognized best, smart and ethical law enforcement policies and practices. I remain committed to providing the highest quality law enforcement services to Beaufort County; embracing the evolving needs of our community; and maintaining the public’s trust and confidence in the Sheriff’s Office.
