Public Safety

The Town of Kiawah is responsible for public safety health and welfare for its residents and guests. The Town contracts with the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office for 24 hour police protection. The deputies work directly for the Town. Call 9-1-1  in the event of an emergency or if you notice any suspicious activity. Deputies patrol the entire Island including the beach and enforce uniform traffic violations. Their presence on the Island helps to deter criminal activity and helps to maintain a safe community for residents, employees and visitors.
