 Community policing
 
All police work doesn’t involve crime. On May 10 the Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office got a call about a missing person. The individual was and elderly man suffering from dementia and unable to walk very well who had disappeared from his home. Armed with a description the DCSO notified other area law enforcement and after about an hour, the subject was located by Summerville Police at the Flowertown Restaurant. He told police someone he didn’t know had given him a ride there. DCSO helped the gentleman return home.
 
Animal cruelty
 
The Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office was called to Dillinger Avenue in North Charleston May 13, in response to an injured animal call. The owner of a female German shepherd told police that his dog had an apparent injury and that upon taking her to the vet, discovered that the dog had either been shot with a pellet gun or some type of sling shot. The responding officer saw no signs of aggression in the dog. The owner reported that juveniles had, in the past, thrown rocks at the dog.
 
Suspicious fire
 
The Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office received a call to respond to Sumners Drive and Clubhouse, in Ridgeville, on May 14. Upon arrival, the deputy found a tow truck on the roadside that appeared to be on fire. Dorchester County Fire and Rescue were on scene and extinguished the fire. On inspection, it was discovered that the vehicle was unoccupied, missing a license plate and the VIN number was damaged and could not be read. However, the serial number on the tow body was legible. The truck appeared to be a Ford Super Duty Wrecker with a Dynamic Tow Body.
