OFFICE VANDALISM UPDATEAs many of you have likely heard, the CCDP Office was vandalized at the end of last week. We thank everyone for their support and resilience in the face of this horrific act. We are working with the police department to find the suspect who is believed to have appeared in security footage, and they have asked for public assistance to locate him.

Here is the description: The suspect was wearing a dark-colored baseball hat with lettering, a light-colored face mask, a dark blue jacket and pants, and light-colored Adidas sneakers. The individual had on a tan or camouflage backpack.

If you have any information, please call 843-743-7200 or Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
