I think that the best way to better protect people who patronize the businesses at Broadway at the Beach is for the person responsible for providing security to increase the number and quality of the security officers there.
The businesses should be willing to pay a little more to provide better security for their patrons. Security officers are the eyes and ears for the Myrtle Beach Police Department. People in the know will avoid Broadway at the Beach after dark if they are smart. We certainly do.
Perhaps the people who are victims of the predatory criminals there don’t read the Local section of The Sun News and so find out the hard way how dangerous it can be there after dark.
