A new memorial to honor fallen police in Myrtle Beach is a step closer to completion after a $4,000 donation.

The Myrtle Beach Fallen Officer Memorial, which is located at 1002 Carver Street, is expected to be finished by the end of the summer and will be dedicated during an annual ceremony in December, said Capt. Marty Brown with Myrtle Beach police.

The Ancient Order of the Hibernians donated $4,000 to the fund Wednesday.

The memorial will have a reflection pool with a water feature, surrounded by pavers engraved by supporters and names of officers who have been killed in the line of duty.

Donations are still being accepted. Paver donations, which are an 8x12 paver engraved with four lines of text, cost $50. For more information, contact Brown by calling 918-1301.
