Bluffton, South Carolina has made a historic achievement. Stephenie Price was recently sworn in as the first female police chief at the Bluffton Police Department.
Price previously served as the assistant police chief in Savannah, Georgia and has nearly twenty years of experience in law enforcement.
Chief Price sees this move as an honor saying, “People make comments that come up to me like oh my gosh I see you and now I can see myself in law enforcement or oh my gosh I see you and now I can see myself being an executive, that really means something to me. If I can set a good example to those be it male, female, or any gender within, I am more than glad to do so.”
In an effort to make an impact, Chief Price is eager to get to know the members of the Bluffton community and the values instilled in the police department itself.
