MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Police in Myrtle Beach are getting a better look at the millions of visitors who flock to the resort area each year.

The Sun News reports (https://bit.ly/1MykCrN ) the city has started the final phase of a $2.1 million program that by year’s end will have more than 800 cameras monitoring streets and beach accesses.

Other communities in the Myrtle Beach area are also adding cameras.

Nearby Conway recently added 25 cameras in locations such as the city’s Riverwalk and its Riverfront Park. And earlier this year Horry County installed cameras at six of the county’s 28 boat landings.

Law enforcement officials say that using cameras will not only allow them to solve crimes, but just the fact people see a camera may make them think twice before breaking the law.
