PENDLETON, S.C. (AP) - The new police chief in Pendleton says the department should be on the street starting next month.

The Anderson Independent Mail reported (https://bit.ly/29xYPDv) the town has decided to have a police department again after the department was shut down in 2006.

Chief Doyle Burdette was hired last fall to restart the police department. Burdette told the town council Tuesday that he and his men would begin regular operations Aug. 1.

The three-person department will not be able to provide 24-hour coverage. The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office will continue to respond to call in off hours. The Sheriff’s Office has patrolled the town since 2006.

Burdette worked previously for police department sin Greenville and Belton.
