The Rotary Club of Myrtle Beach recently named Detective Tiffany Whitmire as the Joe McGarry Police Officer of the Year. Detective Whitmire marks the club’s 55th recipient.
In introducing the seven nominees, emcee, Matt Sedota, thanked the officers for their hard work and dedication.
“Winning this award is a great honor. It means a lot to our officers to be recognized by Rotary and to give a name to the faces who work to keep our community safe,” Detective Whitmire said. She accepted the award, along with a Paul Harris medallion, before both an in-person and Zoom audience that included more than 100 Rotarians, city officials, and members of Myrtle Beach law enforcement.
This year marked the first time the Rotary Club of Myrtle Beach has selected a Police Officer of the Year since 2019. “We had to postpone this important program due to Covid,” said Rotary’s President, Terrance Herriott. “We are happy that we were able to host the program this year, and we congratulate Detective Whitmire along with all of the nominees. We are grateful for their service,” he continued.
