SCLEOA Executive Director

 Ryan Alphin

Welcome to the South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers’ Association. More than 70 years ago, prominent law enforcement officers in our state recognized the need for a statewide law enforcement association that would be open to all criminal justice professionals. In response to that need, the South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers' Association, commonly known as the SCLEOA, was created in 1941and quickly became known as, “The Voice of Law Enforcement in South Carolina.”

Today, nearly 8,000 officers, representing every rank in municipal, county, state and federal law enforcement enjoy the valuable services and benefits provided by SCLEOA. We strive to meet the needs of law enforcement professionals through line of duty death benefits, legal representation, legislative monitoring, training programs, communication, recreation, and networking opportunities. Ultimately, we feel it is our responsibility to, “protect the protectors”. 

We hope you will use this website to take full advantage of all of your membership benefits. If we can ever be of assistance to you or if you have suggestions on how we can better serve you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
