Horry County PD promotes longtime officer to captain, sole female on command staff

The Horry County Police Department welcomed and congratulated a longtime officer for being promoted from Lieutenant to Captain.

Capt. Vaught was promoted to the position of captain of the North Precinct.

The department shared a photo on Facebook of her daughter pinning her new ‘Police Captain’ badge.

Her new position includes overseeing patrol operations and community outreach in the Little River, Carolina Forest, Wampee, Poplar, and Restaurant Row areas.

As the sole female Command Staff member at this time, we thought it only right that the announcement be made before the conclusion of Women’s History Month,” the HCPD said on Facebook. We can’t wait to see the history that Capt. Vaught will make as she continues her career with HCPD.
