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 call the nonemergency number at 843-743-7200. 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.
