Dear Visitors and Friends, 

   The Town of Summerville is a culturally diverse community located in Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester Counties approximately twenty miles west of Charleston. We are primarily a residential community of approximately 46,974 residents in a metropolitan area of more than 127,000 people.  Our community takes great pride in its "Small Town Feel" and its dedication to trees, flowers and aesthetic beauty.  Together with Dorchester School District II, recognized as one of the best school districts in the state, we proudly support our young people. In partnership with our citizens, local business and industry, we strive to improve the quality of life for our community. 

On behalf of the Summerville Police Department, I want to thank the people of  Summerville for all they do to make this the best police department in the state of South Carolina.  I would like to welcome all who visit our site and town and hope that the information provided here will encourage you to select our community as a great place to live.
