Officer Hill: Enforcing the law not always easy


Winston Churchill once said, “We sleep soundly in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.”

This is one of the quotes that Brandon Hill values.

As a nearly nine-year veteran of law enforcement, he is one of those rough men.

“A good person has to stand up for what’s right,” Hill said.

He did not always want to be a policeman, but he wanted to stand up for what is right.

Hill spent a lot of weekends with his grandparents, and his grandpa told him stories of his military life.

Consequently, for a time Hill wanted to join the military, but the desire slowly transitioned into wanting to be a law enforcement officer.

For Hill, his success on the job relies on his personal philosophy, not just the physical aspects of the job.
