Deputy Recognized for Dedication to Helping At-risk Child

Posted on August 3, 2020

Tiffany HillCaught in the Act is a recognition program for Union County employees. This program allows the chance to recognize and thank employees for going above and beyond expected roles within their job description.

As a Deputy with the Union County Sheriff’s Office, Tiffany Hill works tirelessly to ensure the safety of our community and constantly helps others.

Like many of her fellow law enforcement officers, Tiffany faces complicated situations on a daily basis. They can require complex and dynamic solutions, but that has never stopped Tiffany from going the extra mile. As she demonstrated in June, Tiffany is willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to make a difference in the life of others.

A few weeks ago, Tiffany was dispatched to a home where a child had threatened self-harm. Unfortunately, the child continued making similar statements to a therapist with the Union County Behavioral Health Collaborative several days later. This resulted in a call to the Sheriff’s Office to check on the child. Tiffany heard the call and recognized the child’s name. Eager to help, Tiffany assisted with the response. She immediately reached out to the Behavioral Health Collaborative to get the child’s medical history and asked for recommendations to ensure his wellbeing. She followed up with the Behavioral Health Collaborative and collaborated with the therapists to plan for child’s safety. Her empathy, responsiveness, and trustworthiness all helped provide consistency and uniformity to a difficult situation.

For going above and beyond, Tiffany has been awarded the third quarter Caught in the Act Award of 2020. Employees who receive the Caught in the Act Award receive a $100 bonus in their next paycheck. They are also eligible for the annual Caught in the Act award.

Union County Government employees nominate coworkers when they catch them going above and beyond. Nominations for this recognition program are reviewed quarterly.
