The Eutawville Police Department’s chief has resigned and the S.C. Law Enforcement Division is investigating him.
Steven D. Holloway submitted his resignation on Monday.
On Thursday, SLED spokesman Thom Berry stated the agency “has an investigation underway involving allegations against the former police chief of that department.”
Holloway has not been charged with any crime.
When reached by phone, Holloway said he didn’t have any comments about the SLED investigation and said the reason for his resignation was “personal.”
Holloway graduated from the S.C. Criminal Justice Academy in May 2011. He became a full-time officer with the Eutawville Police Department that year.
By February 2012, he was promoted to the rank of corporal.
He became police chief in the summer of 2015.
Holloway previously worked as an animal control officer for Orangeburg County from 2008 until 2011.
In April 2017, the Eutawville Police Department hired Damien Hartwell as an officer. Hartwell is the town’s only full-time officer. There is also one part-time officer.
Eutawville Mayor Brandon Weatherford said he has no comment at this time.
