Darlington's sheriff's office announces new alert system

The Darlington County Sheriff's Office is rolling out a new alert system.

The Nixle community information service will allow the sheriff's office to send out text messages and e-mails when a person is missing or wanted or if there's a concern for resident safety.

Darlington county residents and those in neighboring communities can sign up here.

North Myrtle Beach also participates in the service.
