Horry County is a county along the northeast coast of South Carolina, approximately 100 miles north of Charleston. It has approximately 269,000 residents, with its population concentrated around the cities of Conway and Myrtle Beach. In recent years, growing community complaints of solicitation have led the Horry County Police Department to adopt new strategies in an effort to combat consumer demand. These have included street-level and web-based reverse stings, the publication of arrestees’ names, and the imposition of “SOAP” orders restricting offenders from entering designated parts of the county.
